Explosives find closes St Ninian’s Isle beach

A SHETLAND beauty spot has been cordoned off by police and coastguard after live ammunition was found on St Ninian’s Isle beach.

An 18 inch long hand launcher has been washed up on the beach close to the island itself. It is deemed to be live and should not be touched.

Shetland Coastguard was alerted on Saturday and reported the find to police and the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team.

The beach will be closed to the public until at least Tuesday when a bomb disposal team is expected to arrive in Shetland.
