The Royal Navy this evening brought to an end the saga of the WWII bomb. Thanks to their expensive underwater technology in Remus,the erstwhile bomb was located and was finally detonated approximately 1.5 miles from shore. Local television cameras recorded the explosion that could be felt on land, as the spout of seawater shot around 150 feet into the air.

For a look at the event, from start to finish of the whole saga since the bomb originally washed up on the shore, go to Felixstowe TV who have provided some really excellent footage and reports.

And thanks should also go to the Royal Navy for their perseverance in locating and dealing with the wayward bomb.
