Warning for shipping as ordnance found in Scapa flow

HM Coastguard is warning people to keep clear of the area between Hoy and Cava in Scapa Flow, Scotland after a suspected unexploded wartime torpedo was discovered on the seabed during an underwater survey.
It's an area popular with dive charter vessels and HM Coastguard is putting out warnings to keep away.
The military Explosives Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team is currently expected to arrive on scene today (23 June), to carry out an assessment and make it safe.

Kaimes Beasley, duty controller for HM Coastguard said: 'With weather in the area likely to be good today, it's more than possible that dive charter boats will want to go there, but our strong advice is to keep away.'
