‘Dummy’ World War II bomb found near Sullom Voe terminal
Shetland coastguard was alerted to what was thought to be a bomb this week next to the Sullom Voe oil terminal.
The object turned out to be a dummy from the Second World War, but caused alarm when it was discovered by a remotely operated vehicle near to the Brent pipeline outside the terminal.
The dummy was brought in to Lerwick by the research ship Acergy Petrel on Wednesday night and a bomb expert confirmed it is not dangerous.
