A cautious approach was needed by fire-fighters along Fresh Water Beach at Burton yesterday afternoon (Tuesday 8th October).
A mysterious canister was found washed up on the shore.
On closer inspection fire-fighters found it to be a pesticide canister. They took it away to be disposed of.
The aluminium canisters are frequently found on beaches and shorelines after being discarded from cargo ships.
Anyone who finds one should report it to the emergency services.
