MAIB report reveals drama of the moment a WWII bomb exploded under a fishing boat

The shocking details of an explosion off Cromer which left a fishing boat’s crewmen with life-changing injuries have been laid bare in a new report. A German bomb had lain dormant on the seabed since the Second World War 80 years ago until it was disturbed by crab-pot string from the Galwad-Y-Mor, just over two years ago. The bomb detonated, triggering a shockwave and gas explosion that threw the boat out of the water and left the crew nursing a string of serious injuries, including broken arms and legs, and the loss of sight in one crewman’s eye. photos, >click to read<,>click for related stories< 11:08
