Army bomb disposal officers have carried out a controlled explosion on a World War Two grenade in County Antrim.

The grenade was discovered on the shoreline, close to the Hazelbank Park in Newtownabbey, at about 10:00 BST.

It was reported to police as a suspicious object and caused a bomb alert in the area.

Following the bomb disposal operation, a police spokeswoman said the grenade was corroded and had been in the area for some time.
