Utility Contractors Find WWII Era Bomb
Derbyshire Village, United Kingdom workers from the Western Power Distribution company laying new utility lines made an explosive discovery when they found a WWII era bomb in Earl Sterndale. EOD was called out to investigate and respond to the find.
In a post on their social media page, Western Power Distribution said: "This unexploded WWII bomb was found by our contractors working at Earl Sterndale in the Derbyshire Peak District this week. The bomb squad made a preliminary assessment of the find and cordoned off the area with a police guard. They then returned the following day, confirming the bomb was live and detonating it safely. Thankfully, our work to dig and lay new electricity cables is usually much less explosive."
