Emergency services / Cordon in place after military ordnance washes up on shoreline

A ROYAL Navy bomb disposal team is expected to arrive in Shetland on Monday after a piece of military ordnance was found washed up in the west mainland.

The coastguard said on Saturday evening that rescue officers were maintaining a cordon near the point of Grunataing in the Walls area.

People are asked to stay clear of the area until the navy team has safely disposed of the item.
