Unexploded bomb found on popular beach packed with sunbathers

An unexploded bomb has been found on a popular Scots beach as the mercury rises and Scots flock to the sun. 

Police have confirmed that they were made aware of the ordinance yesterday on Roseisle Beach in Moray by the Coastguard who are dealing with the incident. 

The sandy beach is a popular spot for sun seekers and has been packed during the recent hot weather. 

It’s understood that the bomb was found and the beach secured with an explosion expected today.

The Maritime and Coastguard agency has been contacted for comment.

A source said the coastguard are yet to arrive on the scene for the detonation.

Bombs and other explosives, usually from the world wars, often wash up on Scots shores causing panic.

Last month, specialist units raced to the town of Stromness this morning after the alarm was raised on Orkney.

The teams found the three inch piece ‘historic projectile ‘ with left over TNT.

It is unclear the age or condition of the explosives found on the Moray beach.
