One Of These Nights

Brighton beach closed after a suspected unexploded mortar shell was found.

Sussex Police cordoned off an area to the west of Brighton Palace Pier.

Part of the beach was closed following the discovery of the item earlier this afternoon at around 2:20pm.

"The scene has been made safe while we await attendance from the Explosive Ordnance Disposal," a police spokesman said just a short while ago. 

Members of the public have been advised to stay away from the area until the beach is made safe and reopened. However, it is not known at this time when the beach is likely to re-open.
