World War Two bomb detonated off coast of Denmark

A World War Two era bomb has been detonated in waters near Langeland, a Danish island to the south of the country.

A fisherman immediately notified authorities after the 130kg weapon got caught in his net.

Sappers from the Danish navy placed the bomb back in the water and attached a 10kg explosive charge to it, allowing for a controlled detonation.

The explosion occurred 15m (49ft) below the surface, according to the defence department.
