Ministry of Defence experts will continue to assess the situation after more than 1,000 explosives from the Second World War were uncovered following a landslide at Mappleton beach , near Hornsea. A guarded cordon was put in place after the
ordnance became exposed and army bomb disposal experts from Catterick in North have been dealing with the incident, They carried out 15 controlled explosions on Sunday and MoD experts will continue to assess the situation in the area which was used by the RAF during the war for target practice.
"Ordnance is uncovered several times a year due to coastal erosion but with the recent poor weather we've had it's exacerbated the erosion and all this has been uncovered, There is a mix of rockets, mortars, 25lb bombs and more. We are advising people to stay away from the area."
