Coastguard called out to assist with ordnance found on Eskmeals beach

SHARE:

Millom and Furness Coastguard have been called out to help clear the beach at Eskmeals of any dangerous items. A spokesperson said:

"Items were checked by the Army bomb disposal unit for any suspicious ones. Consequently 15 items were disposed of using 13 controlled explosions.

"The area was quite popular with the Luftwaffe during the WW2 and lots of ordnance was dropped, also there was a lot of explosive scuttled, in ships, in an area called Beauforts Dyke. It is thought that these ships are now breaking up allowing their deadly cargo to escape.

"It is vitally important that if you discover anything you suspect could be ordnance, not to approach it but, dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard. We will then arrange for it to be dealt with in a safe manner."
