POLICE are warning Isle of Wight residents to be on their guard against unexploded ordnance which may have washed up on beaches following the winter storms.

The extreme weather has caused more unexploded shells to wash up on the shoreline or be discovered on flooded land.

The public has been asked to report any ordinance they find to the police straight away so it can be assessed and removed appropriately.
