One man who lives nearby, Peter Whittleton, said: ""The possible device is on a section of the beach which has lost a lot of the sand that was dredged up from the offshore area near Yarmouth when the beach was improved by the sandscaping scheme in 2019.

"This seems to be a more frequent occurrence here as the sand is being washed away."

More to follow.
