A bomb disposal team was called to Winterton beach, near to the dunes, on Saturday afternoon (August 24).

The three explosives had been discovered by a member of the public, who called police around 4pm.

Officers from Norfolk Police were joined at the beach by an Explosive Ordnance Disposal team, who "dispatched" the mortars, a spokesperson confirmed.

Thousands have hit beaches around the coast, including at Winterton, this Bank Holiday weekend to bask in the summer sun.
