Royal Navy Searches for Lost Bomb

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

Royal Navy divers are searching for a huge World War Two bomb which has been lost off the Suffolk coast as it was being towed out to sea to be safely detonated, according to a report on www.telegraph.co.uk.

The 1,000lb device, thought to be German and dropped in 1942, was washed ashore at Felixstowe, a week ago, and hundreds of homes were evacuated.

Bomb disposal experts attached the device to a floating frame to tow it two miles out to sea to destroy it. But strong tides dislodged the bomb and Royal Navy divers have spent six days trying to relocate it.  (Source: www.telegraph.co.uk)
