Unexploded military flare washed ashore


Arnside and South Lakes Coastguard Rescue Team were called out to an unexploded military flare washed up on the beach at Jenny Brown’s point on 18th January.

A spokesperson said:

"The beach was cordoned off and the flare quickly identified as a “live misfire” & unstable.

"Following a discussion with the Coastguard watch manager at Holyhead & the MOD, it was decided to task the MOD Bomb Disposal team to deal with it. 

"The Arnside Coastguard team kept the beach closed until the Bomb Disposal team safely detonated the flare with a controlled explosion around 5.00 pm." 

Andy Pringle, Arnside Coastguard Station Officer said:

"Occasionally we do get live flares or unexploded ordnance washing up on the beach, so it is worth being vigilant. 

"Fortunately a quick thinking member of the public recognised the flare as being dangerous & immediately called the Coastguard. If you see anything suspicious like this, do not touch it, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard."
