Bomb disposal experts arrive in the isles with a bang

ROYAL Navy bomb disposal experts have been in Shetland to dispose of small arms ammunition handed in to police during a recent weapon amnesty.

The team, from the northern diving group at Faslane, also collected a washed up smoke marker on a beach at the island of Papa near Burra.

All of the items, along with a pyrotechnic also handed into police as part of the amnesty, were destroyed at the Staney Hill quarry in Lerwick on Wednesday thanks to a controlled explosion.
