Following the incident HM Coastguard warned in a social media post, "It's common to find all types of objects after bad weather. Most are harmless, but unexploded ordnance can wash up on the shore too. If you're unsure about an object, do not touch it/move it. Let the experts decide if it's safe. Move to a safe spot and call #999Coastguard."
