Coastguard teams were called to a Devon beach over the weekend after a possible ordnance was found. A local search and rescue team, based in East Devon, were tasked to investigate the item on Branscombe beach on Saturday afternoon, reports DevonLive.
Beer Coastguard and Rescue Team shared photos of the object on Saturday (February 11) that was later discovered as ‘safe’ by the Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit (EOD) in Plymouth.
Following confirmation from the EOD, the local coastguard team were able to move the object from the beach without hazard. On Facebook, the team shared photos of the circular object, which is believed to be an item from MSC Napoli which famously suffered catastrophic damage in 2007.
