“If you ever come across anything suspicious like this item, please do not pick it up, contact your local law enforcement agency for assistance”
By Daniel Green
RESIDENTS were told to “stay indoors” after police were called to the scene of a suspected unexploded mortar shell. Roads around the Eastbourne Road area of Brighton were closed and a cordon set up following reports of the unexploded ordinance as a precaution. The explosives ordnance disposal team removed the shell from the scene, to allow for a controlled detonation to take place safely elsewhere. A police spokesman said that there was “no risk to the public”. He also said it was believed that the shell was “innocently bought by a member of the public”. Brighton and Hove Police thanked the public “for their patience while road closures were in place”.
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.
