The device was discovered more than 850m away from the tea room on Dunwich beach earlier today.

A Suffolk police spokesman said: “It washed ashore at high tide.

“The coastguard are staffing the cordon tonight and it is expected that a Royal Navy diving team will be attending first thing in the morning in order to make the device safe.”

It comes after a World War Two mortar shell was found on the beach in front of Dingle Marshes yesterday.

The device was later deemed safe and removed.
