Torrox beach "shell shock" (quite literally)

A lethal mortar shell, of a type used by Republican forces during the Spanish Civil War, has been discovered on a popular family beach in Torrox.

Bomb disposal experts later defused the shell without incident.

However, anyone making a similar discovery should call the Guardia Civil immediately on 062 - and do not attempt to pick up the shell!
