Warnings to vessels as disposal experts head to Suffolk

A large metal object caught on Monday in a fishing vessel’s nets some 2½ miles off Southwold, on the East Coast, is being treated as a suspected WWII bomb.

Great Yarmouth Coastguard reported on Tuesday that a joint forces bomb disposal team will examine the object, described as being at least 4ft long, on Wednesday.

The coastguard are broadcasting regular warning messages about the hazard, which has been marker buoyed, by radio.
