UXO on Aberdeen Beach

An unexploded bomb  has been found on Aberdeen beach Esplanade which was closed by police as a precaution after officers were informed of the discovery at around 3.40pm on Sunday.

Road closures are in place during the investigation.

It was later fully reopened but a cordon will remain on the beach ahead of the device being removed on Monday.

road was shut from the roundabout with the Beach Ballroom, the junction with Park Road and the junction with King Street.

A police spokesman said: ” Police Scotland can advise that the Beach Esplanade in Aberdeen has now fully reopened, following the earlier discovery of an unexploded ordnance device on the beach.

“A small cordon will remain in place on the beach overnight for public safety and the item is expected to be removed tomorrow.”

The discovery comes just days after a sea mine was safely removed from the Gourock coast.

That device off the coast of the Inverclyde town was thought to date from either the 1940s or 1950s.
