A bomb squad was called out to Fylingdales Moor on Sunday evening after two unexploded bombs were discovered.

Dating back to the Second World War, the shells were a relic of the artillery exercises which took place on the moor during that period.

Although they posed no danger to the public, a bomb disposal team from Catterick attended the scene and was able to remove the shells early the following morning.

Hawk and Owl Trust ranger Chris Hansell said: “The shells were ‘close’ to the Lyke Wake Walk steps on the west side of Jugger Slack in a water course and had been exposed by the recent heavy rains.”
