Aberdeen Beach was cordoned off today after a potentially explosive device was discovered.
Experts said they believe the find to be an historic bomb and the bomb squad were called to the scene while police cordoned off the area.
The affected area is understood to be between groynes 24 and 25, near the driving range at King’s Link Golf Centre.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “At around 10.45am today a member of the public called police in Aberdeen to advise they had come across what they thought was a suspected explosive device on Aberdeen beach. Police put a cordon in place to ensure public safety.
“Officers from Explosive Ordinance Disposal attended this afternoon to assess the device but deemed the item as non explosive and not a risk to the public.
“Members of the public are thanked for their patience whilst the cordon was in place.”
