World War Two mine destroyed past Plymouth Breakwater
A WORLD War Two mine has been destroyed after being found by a fishing vessel.
A Royal Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team disposed of the mine in a controlled explosion south of Plymouth Breakwater.
The explosion took place at 11am today, and Royal Navy EOD divers conducted a survey to establish the success of the operation.
A 1000m cordon was established for the destruction of the mine, which had been recovered by a fishing vessel near Eddystone Light.
