Tuesday, June 24, 2014 - 8:50

ROYAL Navy bomb disposal experts were called to the Isle of Wight last night (Monday) after a shell and rounds from the Second World War were found.
A Royal Navy spokesman said the team from Portsmouth was called to the aggregates yard on Arctic Road, Cowes, after the 4 inch shell, and two 1.5 inch rounds were brought in on a dredger.
A controlled explosion of the wartime ordnance was carried out at 5.45pm.
It was thought they had been dredged up from the seabed around Selsey.
