A Royal Navy bomb disposal team has blown up rocket motors found on a South Uist beach.
A controlled explosion was carried out this morning following the find of two ordanance devices over the weekend.
The first was made at Howmore at about 2pm on Friday, with Benbecula and Lochboisdale coastguard teams attending.
The area was cordoned off to protect members of the public whilst the Royal Navy team made their way for the Hebridean isle.
