Ammo closes tip

Have your say

AMMUNITION for a training rifle caused a rubbish tip to be evacuated.

The MoD’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal team was called to Segensworth Household Waste and Recycling Centre, in Barnes Wallis Road, at 2.40pm yesterday.

The tip closed early and staff were evacuated.

Police made the scene safe by 5pm and the ammunition, which was for a training rifle, was disposed of.
