Have your say

POLICE and bomb disposal teams were sent to Gosport High Street today after a handful of shells were found.

The 3in and 7in shells, similar to bullets, were found in an empty industrial unit which is being cleared out.

Police officers and members of the Royal Navy’s bomb disposal team were called to the incident at 11.42am today and remained on the scene for several hours.

The shells are not thought to be a danger to the public.

A spokeswoman from Hampshire Constabulary said: ‘The shells are very small, they are like little bullets.

‘It’s not an unusual occurrence for us to find these sorts of things, we get incidents like this a lot.’
