Naval explosives experts have blown up a large Second World War German bomb which was picked up by a dredger.
The 500lb device was brought to the surface on Sunday by the David Church which was operating near the entrance of Dover Harbour in Kent, a Royal Navy spokesman said.
The 1m long bomb was taken three miles out to sea off deal and detonated on the seabed by a team from Portsmouth on Sunday. A one-mile cordon was put in place to protect shipping.
