Harwich, Essex

Part of Harwich beach had to be cordoned off yesterday after a suspected unexploded weapon was discovered.

A member of the public found it on Sunday afternoon before police cordoned off the scene near West End Lane.

Officers called in the Ministry of Defence's Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit to deal with it.
