The area, a well-known haunt for fossil hunters along the Jurassic Coast, was cordoned off.

The Royal Navy experts from Plymouth later carried out a controlled explosion.

A HM Coastguard spokesperson said: “If you find anything suspicious on the beach or shoreline, don’t touch it but instead dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.”
