Royal Navy explosives disposal experts have been called in to examine what is suspected to be a World War II mine found in ‘The Firth of Forth’.

Coastguards alerted the Navy team after the crew of a fishing vessel reported snagging the ordnance in its gear, off Methil in Fife.

It is understood the mine will be blown up in the sea if it is found to be live.

The Forth Coastguard said the mine had to be dealt with ‘very carefully’.
