Live shell found (and exploded) on beach

I've waxed on about the recent ordnances, shells and (spent) bombs brought onto the beach in New Jersey via a recent beach fill project. This mistake cost $21 million, closed the beaches and will wash away during the first few big storms.

Well... it seems some fishermen found a German mine from WWII in Bridgwater Bay, United Kingdom. They believe the 10 x 2.5-foot mine was dropped during the war by a German bomber.

Here it is... beach trash to end all beach trash. More.

I think it's safe to say that shells (spent or not spent) do not belong on our beaches...
