“If you ever come across anything suspicious like this item, please do not pick it up, contact your local law enforcement agency for assistance”

Coastguard volunteers have cordoned off an area at Gallanach Bay while the explosive ordnance disposal unit – a regiment of the British Army – has been called upon to explode the bomb. Unexploded ordnances are not rare in parts of mainland Scotland, but less so on the Scottish islands. Police called upon volunteers in the coastguard coastal team from the Isle of Muck to go to Gallanach Bay. A coastguard spokesman said: “We were called to assist police. Coastal volunteers cordoned off the area where the ordnance was found. We did that earlier today, and we are waiting for the explosive unit to attend.” A police spokesman said: “We were made aware of possible unexploded ordnance found on the Isle of Muck shortly after 4.15pm on Thursday April 7. “HM Coastguard and explosive ordnance disposal have been made aware.” The Ministry of Defence has been approached.
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.
