World War II bomb “unexpectedly” Detonates in UK City

World War II bomb

An ancient World War II bomb “unexpectedly” detonated on Friday in the British seaside resort of Great Yarmouth, according to a statement from the Norfolk Police.

No one was wounded in the blast, which prevented an army disposal team’s preparations for a controlled explosion, according to the police, which claimed the 250 kg bomb was found on Tuesday by a contractor working on the third crossing over the River Yare.

According to the statement, army specialists cut the device using a method that causes the explosives to burn slowly.

Following the explosion, the Norfolk Police tweeted the following:

“We can report that the World War II bomb at Great Yarmouth that had not yet exploded has exploded.

The explosion “took place during slow burn work to disarm the explosives and was not a planned detonation.

“All military and emergency service personnel have been located. When we have more information, we will share it with you.”
