WWII Era Bombs Discovered During Dredging Operations

Lincolnshire, United Kingdom a dredger working approximately four miles from the shore near Huttoft Beach dredged up two unexploded bombs from the seabed. The crew of the ship called the local police who dispatched a life boat crew for support. A Royal Navy EOD Team from Portsmouth was also dispatched to the scene to provide technical support.

EOD identified the bombs as WWII era munitions (size and type not reported). EOD determined that the bombs were safe to transport without the need to evacuate the 22 member crew on-board. EOD transported the bombs to the shore and safely disposed of them through an open detonation operation.
