The discovery of an unexploded hand grenade has resulted in part of a Fife golf course being cordoned off.
A walker found the Second World War bomb by Leven Links Golf Course on Wednesday afternoon.
Police were alerted at about 12.25pm and a bomb disposal team has been drafted in to dispose of the device.
Four holes on the course were declared a no-go zone as emergency services dealt with the incident.
Golfers were alerted to the drama in a message from the club, which told them that holes four, five, 12 and 14 were off limits.
The grenade was found washed up near Fife Coastal Path, close to where others have been found at Silverburn Park.
Finlay Galloway, who works in the course’s shop, said: “We had an unexploded grenade found on the beach side of the fourth hole at Leven.
“It was found by someone walking on the coastal path and they raised the alarm.
“We’ve had to close four of our holes.
“Greenkeeping staff are making sure that the area is secure.”
A police spokeswoman said: “Police in Fife were called to a coastal path close to Silverburn Park in Leven at around 12.25pm on Wednesday September 4 following a report that an antique grenade had been found.
“Officers remain at the scene and the Explosive Ordnance Disposal have been called to assist with the disposal of the item.”
