Royal Navy disposal team called to assist.

A fishing trawler caught more than fish when it trawled up a military target drone with unfired pyrotechnics still attached near Lyme Regis.

Lyme Regis Coastguard Rescue officers were deployed yesterday (Monday), at 3.07pm, to investigate reports and a Royal Navy emergency ordnance disposal team from Plymouth attended Lyme Harbour to make the drone safe.
