Officers from Essex Police were called to an address in Tan Lane in Clacton at about 11.50am. Officers attended and put in place appropriate safety measures, including a cordon. A police spokesperson said: “We liaised with the explosive ordinance disposable (EOD) unit who removed the grenade and moved it to a suitable location for disposal.” The Ministry of Defence (MoD) was contacted for further information.
