Explosive disposal rescheduled for tomorrow

The detonation of unexploded military objects near Chaplin Bay will take place tomorrow.

Bermuda Police Service and Royal Bermuda Regiment members had planned to dispose of the items — confirmed as military ordnance from the Second World War — last Friday, but the operation was postponed due to sea conditions.

Police say the Joint Services Explosives Ordnance Disposal team will work in partnership with British EOD experts for another attempt tomorrow, “using the safest method of disposal”.

In addition, team members will be searching areas of the south shore to see if any other items have been uncovered by storm action.

The items found to date do not present a danger unless people try and move them from their location, police said in a press release.

People are reminded that, if they find anything that they believe to be military ordnance, not to touch it and immediately call 911.
