Emergency services at the scene of the bomb alert.

Part of an Angus beach was sealed off on Saturday over a suspected bomb alert.

Police and Coastguard were called to a section of foreshore near Carnoustie after a member of the public discovered what they believed to be ordnance exposed by the low tide.

A cordon was put around the site.

Police and Coastguard attended the incident.

Police Scotland confirmed the alarm centred around the possibility of the items being wartime material and the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit was informed.

They did not travel to Angus but it was confirmed the suspect items were rocks.

Emergency services left the area shortly after 4.30pm.

It is the second ordnance-related alarm in Angus within a week after a quick-thinking teenager found  a Second World War landmine in sands near Montrose.

The land mine found on the beach near Montrose.

Kyle Constantine was walking his dog at Kinnaber, north of the Angus town last Saturday when the teenager came across the rock-covered mine.

It was destroyed in a controlled explosion by the EOD team.
