Divers exploring the Cornish coast have discovered a suspected World War Two bomb that is thought to be a parachute mine, according to coastguards.
The device was found 2,600ft (800m) from a beach near Falmouth in Cornwall.
It was reported to local coastguards yesterday morning by a local diver who discovered it when diving off Maenporth beach.
According to BBC News, a Royal Navy bomb disposal team is expected to destroy it, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) has said.
The Falmouth lifeboat was “keeping vessels clear of the area as a precautionary measure”, said the MCA. The device is expected to be destroyed on 30 November.
