Bomb squad called out to Whitehaven false alarm


Yesterday Whitehaven Coastguard were tasked by CGOC Belfast Coastguard to reports of possible ordinance on North Shore Whitehaven.

A spokesperson from the Coastguard said:

"The item was assessed and details and photos sent to EOD and a cordon put in place and maintained until the item was covered by the tide.

"We reattended the scene today at low tide and reinstated the cordon with help Cumbria Police and waited for the arrival of the EOD team.

"The item was assessed, deemed safe after an x-ray and removed from the beach by EOD so the cordons were removed and the team stood down.

"Thanks to Cumbria Police and Whitehaven Marina  for their assistance and the public in general for the inconvenience of the cordon which caused part of the harbour to be inaccessible.

"In an emergency on the coast or at sea call 999 and ask for the Coastguard."
