Second explosive device at Golspie
Yesterday evening HM Coastguard was asked by Police Scotland to assist with a report of a suspected ordnance on the beach at Golspie below the tide line.
This is the second such device discovered within a few weeks at Golspie – the first was disabled by a controlled explosion by Royal Navy bomb disposal experts on August 6.
The Coastguard Rescue Team from Dornoch was sent to Golspie yesterday and met Police colleagues at the scene.
The teams waited until the suspected ordnance was covered by the tide and returned to the scene this morning when the tide had uncovered it. The Coastguard Rescue Team was keeping watch today until the bomb disposal squad arrived.
