An Army bomb squad was called to the beach at Sizewell after an unexploded grenade was found.

Suffolk Police were contacted at around 12.30pm on Saturday July 20 after a member of the public with a metal detector reported finding a grenade with the pin still attached.

Members of Aldeburgh Coastguard helped police cordon off the area on the beach at Sizewell Gap before an Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal Unit arrived.

The unit removed the item after it was x-rayed and found to be empty, and the incident was reported as dealt with by just after 4pm.
