The team were called out to deal with an unexploded WWII shell which had been found by a member of the public close to the cut gate path above Langsett. We called in the MOD Bomb Disposal Unit who arrived on Tuesday morning and were taken by Helicopter to the site.  The shell was examined and found to be in an unstable condition, and was destroyed using a controlled explosion.WARNING!!!There are a number of these shells discovered every year. If you spot one, DO NOT TOUCH IT OR ATTEMPT TO MOVE IT. MAKE A NOTE OF ITS EXACT LOCATION AND REPORT IT TO THE POLICE.
