unusual" ordnance was found off Lilstock Range

Lilstock makes the news today. Taken from the BBC Somerset website:
"A bomb believed to be from World War Two has been found in the Bristol Channel near Hinkley Point nuclear power station.

The 500lb device was discovered 2.5 nautical miles from the coast, about 8m below the surface.

Divers conducting a survey for the construction of the new power station found the ordnance on Monday.

It was destroyed in a controlled explosion at about 15:00 BST on Tuesday.

The "unusual" ordnance was found off Lilstock Range, just west from Steart point and Bridgwater in Somerset."
