The gun and the ‘grenade’ were dragged out of the capital’s Union Canal by magnet enthusiasts John Robertson and Graeme McShane of the Magnet Fishers of Edinburgh group. The pair immediately stopped walkers from coming near the area and placed the suspected explosive device into a bucket of water before calling in the police to investigate at around midday on Saturday. An Explosive Ordnance Disposal team rushed to the scene and an area around the city’s Rope Walk was sealed off for around two hours.
If you find anything that appears to be an explosive device, do not touch it, leave it where it is and call the police. We will contact the appropriate agencies to properly dispose of the item.
