World War Two sea mine found on Dyffryn Ardudwy beach

A World War Two sea mine has been found on a beach in Gwynedd.

The Army bomb squad examined the device on Friday after it washed up on Benar beach at Dyffryn Ardudwy near Barmouth and an area was cordoned off.

A team returned to the site on Saturday to see if a controlled explosion was required, but the mine had already exploded and was not considered a hazard.

It will be removed by Gwynedd council workers on Monday.
