Police called bomb disposal experts yesterday after an unexploded mortar shell was found sticking out of a path in the Braes.

The device that understood to be a World War Two mortar was found on a pathway on the Gleniffer Braes by a man who had been out for a walk .

It was found near a disused power station about 500 yards from Robertson Car Park.

The area was cordoned off and bomb disposal officers  from the Royal Logistic Corps were brought in from Edinburgh who removed the shell after carrying out an  examination.
