Boom!

Just back from a short break in Dorset. On the first evening (12th May) I was wandering along Swanage seafront when the coastguard stopped me as the area had been cordened off while a bomb disposal team dealt with WWII phosphor bombs unearthed by a digger that afternoon.

This one has been accidently ignited during salvage:

The others were cautiously placed into a skip:

Then all were destroyed by a controlled explosion, while the fire brigade, ambulance crews, police, bomb disposal team and me, hid behind a wall.

A unique start to a holiday!
