Police have issued advice after adverse weather leads to an increase of reports of unexploded ordnance (bombs etc)
Hampshire Constabulary have said members of the public who locate what they believe to be unexploded ordnance are advised not to touch it but to call police straight away.
The adverse weather experienced in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight over the past few days has caused more unexploded shells to wash up on the shoreline or be discovered on flooded land. It is very important for public safety that these items are assessed and removed appropriately.
Anyone who discovers items such as this should call police on 101.
