Explosives alert at Portpatrick

Portpatrick this afternoon

PORTPATRICK harbour is currently sealed off by police and Coastguard after a scallop dredger with what is thought to be an unexploded shell or bomb aboard berthed in the village. Military ordnance disposal experts are en route to determine what has been brought up. The seabed off the Rhins is littered with over a million tons of discarded war-surplus ammunition. It was supposed to go into the depths of Beaufort's Dyke but much was dumped closer to shore in shallower waters.
