Smoke rises after the controlled explosion
Yesterday, 17 December 2014, Ardentinny was again submitted to a series of explosive blasts, varying in intensity, originating from RNAD Coulport.
On this occasion the village was forewarned, in contrast to the stream of explosions which occurred in March of this year. However, a forewarning of ‘explosions due to work between the hours of 10.00 and 16.00 hours’ neither gives a reason nor protects against properties experiencing seismic shudders nor people and animals, shock and distress.
A call to RNAD Coulport to register a formal complaint resulted in the advice to do so in writing to Commodore Naval Box C, HMNB Clyde, Helensburgh, G84 8HL.
