An unexploded bomb has been found by a dog at a beach in Norfolk.

Stephen Rose was walking his dog in the Winterton dunes this afternoon when his pet sniffed out the explosive device.

Roughly 10 inches long and covered in rust, the ordinance appears to be a World War Two-era two-inch mortar.

A cordon was put in place as a precaution and an explosive ordinance disposal team detonated the bomb.
