WWII Mine Blown Up Spectacularly in Front of English BeachS

This is what you get down on the beach on a Saturday afternoon—if you're in the West of England. Experts detonated a German mine from the Second World War after they discovered it in Bridgwater Bay. The 10 x 2.5-foot mine was dropped during the war by a German bomber, and was discovered sitting in mud by a fisherman. UPDATED: a couple of videos, one of the ka-boom itself, and another of the bomb disposal team with the six-decades-old behemoth, after the jump.

The Navy boys look so relaxed—and just look at the size of that shiny bomb. [Daily Mail and Burham-on-Sea]
