A TEAM of experts carried out the controlled explosion of a World War Two bomb on a beach this morning (Tues).

The unexploded shell had washed up on the beach at St Thomas’ Head near Woodspring Priory, and the police and coastguard were alerted by a member of the public on Sunday.

The area was cordoned off while a team from the army’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit was called up from Plymouth.

The bomb was then destroyed at about 10.20am this morning.

The cordon has been lifted while an investigation is underway at the scene.
