Boom­ing bril­liant

Argyllshire Advertiser - - DISTRICT NEWS -

Kames coast­guard res­cue team had a busy day on Thurs­day De­cem­ber 13.

Vig­i­lant beach clean­ers found a sus­pected sub­ma­rine phos­pho­rus flare on Ascog Bay and di­alled 999 and re­ported it to the coast­guard.

The team was tasked to in­ves­ti­gate and af­ter a pos­i­tive iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, set up a cor­don around it.

A Kames coast­guard spokesper­son said: ‘We re­turned at first light this morn­ing with the Royal Navy Ord­nance unit which dis­posed of it safely via a con­trolled ex­plo­sion. Some of you may of heard it, it was a loud boom.’

If you find any­thing you think may be ord­nance or flares, call 999 and ask for the coast­guard.
