Ammo dump anger.

A furious Scots MP will quiz Trade Secretary Ian Lang this week about mystery explosions in the sea near a massive ammo dump.

George Foulkes, MP for Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley, will raise the matter in the House of Commons, on Wednesday.

His move comes after last week's admission by the Government that munitions HAD been dropped outside the Beaufort's Dyke dump, in the Irish Sea.

Many of the stray bombs were dislodged during seabed pipe-laying work and washed up on Scots beaches.

The scandal forced Min-isters to hold a survey into the state of the dump.
