A Royal Navy spokesman at the scene has just said the bombs are usually about 10 metres long and this oneis deeply embedded into the seabed with just its tail showing.

Today is the team's second attempt to do a recce. They say they want to excavate around the bomb but the tide is too high and is likely they do excavation work tomorrow when the tide is expected to be lower.
