Explosives experts called after item found on Dorset beach

Bournemouth Echo: File picture File picture

EXPLOSIVES experts were called after an object was washed up on a Dorset beach.

An off-duty coastguard reported finding a ‘small piece of ordnance’ just after 9am yesterday near the Durdle Door Holiday Park.

The matter was passed by coastguards to Dorset Police who alerted the naval explosive ordnance disposal team.

The team found the item to be inert, meaning it does not contain explosive material.

A spokeswoman for Dorset Police said: “We attended the scene after being informed by coastguards that someone had found an ordnance-shaped object.

“It was examined by the explosives disposal team, who stated that it was inert. The team then took the object away.”

I particularly like the patronising explanation of the word 'inert', presumably just in case any of the readers are as ignorant as the writers.

I was thinking much the same, which, if any writers are reading this, means that I also considered it patronising. Patronising is stating the bleedin' obvious, just in case any of the writers didn't know that.
