MULTIPLE SPLASHES AT SEA FOLLOWING UNDERWATER DETONATION OF GERMAN MINE STORY: Britain's Royal Navy bomb experts detonated a 2,000-lb (907-kg) German mine from the Second World War at sea on Sunday (May 19) morning near the Needles, off the Isle of Wight coast in England.

A video, captured by the bomb disposal experts from The Royal Navy Southern Diving Unit 2, showed water splashing high up into the air as the mine exploded under water.

"At 7 ft long [2 metres] and 26 inches wide [66 centimetres], it was still carrying much of its original explosive material so it created quite a splash," written next to the video.

The bomb was accidentally dredged up by a fishing vessel the day before.
