Careful, the Great Flood is Washing Up Unexploded WWII Bombs

By Gary Cutlack on at

The monstrous storms and very big waves we've been battered by so far in 2014 have been producing some exciting finds for beachcombers, with unexploded bombs turning up to worry dog walkers on some parts of our coastline.

Crow Point Beach in north Devon was home to a potentially deadly WWII bomb yesterday, which the Navy swiftly neutralised. Other beaches in Braunton and Minehead have also seen dangerous war leftovers wash up, with police telling walkers not to poke anything rusty and interesting looking with sticks, just in case.

Throwing stones at them from a short distance away is said to be fine, though. [PA]
