WWII explosives found on British beaches after storms

Devon and Cornwall Police warned the recent storms have caused a number of wartime explosives to wash up on British beaches.

Officers advised members of the public not to approach any "suspicious device" and to call 999 immediately.

Runner seriously injured by rope placed across path

A jogger has suffered a serious head and neck injury after running into a rope that had been deliberately tied across a footpath.

The 33-year-old was running with her partner when she ran into the rope tied across a footbridge near the University of Plymouth's Exeter campus.

The rope made the woman fall backwards, and she is currently in a serious but stable condition in hospital. Detective Inspector Grant Leitch from Devon and Cornwall Police said it appears the intent was malicious, as he appealed to the public for information.

This is a serious and troubling incident and I would like to appeal to anyone who was in the vicinity of this incident on Thursday evening. If anyone saw anything - a person or a group of people, possibly acting suspicious - we would like to hear from them.

This includes any instances where members of the public have seen the same appalling behaviour at another time.

We must bring whoever did this to justice. This may have been a profoundly mindless act that's had a very serious consequence.
