A beach and surrounding area in Cornwall were cordoned off after the discovery of a World War 2 bomb.
Coastguards alerted officers to the device, which was washed up at Perranporth, at about 14:25 GMT, Devon and Cornwall Police said.
The device could have come in to shore partly as a result of recent stormy weather, officers added.
A bomb disposal team dealt with the device at the scene.
The beach, Beach Road and Cliff Road were among the areas closed off.
