Explosive team travel to Bowen after bomb was found on beach

AN EXPLOSIVE Ordinance Disposal team from Townsville have travelled to the Bowen area after a large item was found on an isolated beach.

Police are calling it suspicious at this stage after someone reported the object, believing it was a Second World War bomb.

A police spokesman said the team from the North Queensland Joint Logistic Unit were expected to arrive early afternoon.

"It's on the beach in a tidal area," the spokesman said.

"They have to wait for the tide to go down."

A Defence spokesperson said they were unable to provide a photo of the item and said a suitable method of disposal would be determined after the EOD team arrived at the location and identified the object.
