Cordon at Freshwater Co-op following discovery of ship flare

Alert message sent 20/10/2020 09:38:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

We currently have a 50 metre cordon in place around the Co-op in Afton Road, Freshwater.

A large ship distress flare has been found at the location.

We’ve been liaising with the Navy’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team who have advised that the cordon needs to be put in place while the item is safely removed.

We apologise for any inconvenience to anyone in the area – the safety of the public is our priority.

We will update you as soon as we can.
