A BOMB disposal squad was called out after a smoke signal canister was discovered on the shoreline near Port Solent.

A passer-by raised the alarm after spotting the item off Lock View while out for a walk around 2.20pm this afternoon.

Two police vehicles attended and cordoned off the area before sending out an explosive ordnance disposal team to take it away.
