Brixham Harbour cordoned off after 'suspicious device' found

A section of Brixham Harbour has been cordoned off by emergency services following the discovery of a device, described by police as "suspicious".

The Quay was sectioned off after the device - thought to be an unexploded wartime ordnance - was found.

It is believed to have been pulled up by a trawler. Fishermen then alerted Brixham Harbour Office.
