An explosive device has been found on a beach near a holiday resort in Norfolk, coastguards have confirmed.
A member of the public raised the alarm on Saturday afternoon after spotting something wedged into a metal sea defence on the beach at Hopton in Norfolk.
Coastguards from Lowestoft and Gorleston were sent to inspect the 17-inch device, which was covered in rust and sand near Potters Holiday Centre.
An Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal team today x-rayed the object and found it contained explosives.
They will carry out a controlled explosion, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency said.
