Seaview, United Kingdom Police and EOD were called to respond to a report of possible ordnance. According to police reports, the item is believed to be a 20mm round from a WWII fighter plane. Responding EOD determined that the munition was still live.
A spokesperson for the Isle of Wight Police said, "I am grateful to the member of public that found it on the beach and called us. Unfortunately it was picked up and moved, this is dangerous for the person moving it and for the immediate area where it was placed. If you find any old ammunition please leave it where it is and call us. We will instruct you further."
