A CCTV camera from a business in Aston in Birmingham has captured the moment of a controlled explosion of a World War Two bomb.
The bomb was discovered on Monday and was made safe by disposal experts yesterday.
A World War Two bomb that exploded yesterday (16 May) under controlled circumstances has damaged two buildings and left behind tons of sand.
Bomb disposal experts worked overnight after the discovery on Monday morning to make the unexploded WW2 shell safe.
The army said that because of the condition of the bomb, they were unable to move it to a safer place to detonate.
This left the soldiers with only one option, a controlled explosion.
The images show two damaged business premises next to the site the bomb exploded. One is a plastics recycling centre and the other, a paper bag manufacturer.
Construction staff working at a site off Priory Road in Birmingham came across the device during routine work.
The video shows the amount of sand used by the Army to cushion the blast.
