Updated - Bomb Disposal On Perran Beach

There was some excitement on the beach today as a bomb disposal team set off a small explosion.
Apparently there were some items that needed disposing of and our beach has good sand for the job!

Update: Apparently the item was a grenade which was found at David Lays auction house in a box from a house clearance.  They called the police who called the Navy who came down and blew it up on the beach.
