Two public spirited gentlemen from Poole, Jason Kelly of Redhorne Road, and Alan Barlow of Primrose Gardens, said they removed the shells (120mm unexploded tank shells) to protect children playing nearby, from Lulworth Ranges ,between Worbarrow and Tyneham , in May 2013.
However they pleaded guilty in November 2013, to taking and removing projectiles from a danger area without lawful authority. They were discharged after paying £85 each prosecution costs.
