A controlled explosion took place in Herne Bay after a Second World War shell was discovered on the seafront.
Shortly after 10am this morning a bomb disposal van and car were seen parked in Bishopstone Glen.
They later left, but the Coastguard confirmed the shell was later blown up.
A spokesman said: "The Herne Bay team took them to an isolated area approx one mile East of Reculver towers on the North sea wall assisted in setting up a 500 meter cordon whilst the Navy prepared the ordinance for disposal.
"The shell was blown up at just after mid-day and the all clear was given shortly after allowing the cordon to be lifted."
The Ministry of Defence says its bomb disposal unit was arrived at the scene just after 7.15am that morning.
