Controlled explosion ends up being a damp squib for spectators

Spectators were greeted by a slightly windy solent - but no explosion

People watching a controlled detonation of a World War Two bomb in Portsmouth were left disappointed - after the explosion was so small that Royal Navy experts didn't even realise it had happened.

The bomb disposal unit attempted to detonate the 500kg bomb at 0700 this morning, but thought they had been unsuccessful as there had been no plume.

When they returned to blow up the device at 1100, an event attended by media and spectators, they discovered that the bomb had actually exploded during the first attempt - and that a second detonation was no longer necessary.

Southampton F.C.'s assistant manager Eric Black has been named as part of a Daily Telegraph investigation into alleged corruption in football.

The former Aston Villa caretaker manager allegedly told undercover reporters how to bribe officials at other clubs, in order to pass on information about players to a management company.

The club say they are aware of the article in the Daily Telegraph and that they have contacted The FA and The Premier League - and intend to work closely with both bodies when the facts become clear.

Southampton Football Club is fully committed to investigating any situation that directly or indirectly relates to our club, employees or the wider community.

The club immediately requested to be sent, by The Daily Telegraph, the details of this article, but the newspaper declined to share any further information.
