World War 2 Mine Blown Up
An old World War 2 mine that was found off the Essex coast on Friday has finally been blown up.
Previous attempts to detonate the 2000lb mine were abandoned due to bad weather.
The device was picked up by a dredger off the coast of Walton last Friday morning (15th July).
Experts had planned to blow it up on Saturday, but high winds prevented them.
Poor sea conditions on Sunday again stopped Royal Navy divers from making contact with the mine.
The Royal Navy denied reports that it lost the mine during Saturday's operation to lower it to the sea floor.
