ROYAL Navy bomb disposal experts carried out a controlled explosion today (Wednesday) of ten Second World War shells found in dredged gravel at an aggregates yard.
The experts from Portsmouth were called at 1.15pm to Medina Wharf, Arctic Road, and blew up the shells, which ranged in diameter up to three inches.
*It was initially reported the explosion took place at Medina Yard. This was due to incorrect information supplied.
