THE bomb squad is on its way to examine a “possible ordnance” found on Aberdeen beach today.
Police have closed Beach Esplande from the roundabout with the Beach Ballroom, the junction with Park Road and the junction with King Street.
Police were informed at 3.40pm.
A Police Scotland spokesman said the bomb squad was on its way, but could take a number of hours for them to arrive.
The road is shut to protect public safety and is expected to be closed for some time.
