War relics discovered near caravan site

Posted by Freddy Morton

Brits have been urged to leave their tasty food treats chilled in their Dometic caravan fridges and instead go for a stroll around their campsite's surroundings.

Families could be surprised at just what they may find during a trip away from the caravan, if two recent cases are anything to go by.

One example involved an individual staying at a caravan park in Angus, Scotland, coming across a military relic when walking on a nearby beach.

The find was discovered to be a World War II parachute flare, which was then destroyed by a bomb disposal team.

In addiiton, along the coast of the beach in Monifieth, a sea mine from the first world war was then found by coastguards, and also destroyed.

Meanwhile, a group of holidaymakers at the Bunn Leisure caravan park were themselves left amazed upon finding a body of a three-tonne whale at a beach close by, the Chichester Observer reported.

Meanwhile, those with access to caravan refrigeration products were recently encouraged to visit the sands of St Ives, Newquay and Bournemouth, after each were named as some of TripAdvisor's best beaches.
