An unexploded bomb believed to be from the Second World War was discovered on a Norfolk beach this morning.

Norfolk police were first alerted to the discovery on Winterton beach just before 7.15am.

Officers installed a 100m cordon around the area and informed the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team who were called out to assess it.

A spokesman for the Maritime and Coastguard Agency confirmed the Winterton Coastguard Rescue Team worked to support the force during the incident.

A Norfolk Constabulary spokeswoman confirmed just after 12.30pm that the bomb had been safely detonated.
