Fourth UXB Found in Bristol Channel at Hinkley Point Development

A fourth Unexploded Bomb (UXB), reportedly weighing 250lbs, has been found during preparations for the Hinkley Point development in the Bristol Channel.  This follows three similar discoveries in the last few weeks.

The UXB will be destroyed in a controlled explosion by a Royal Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team, with a 500m safety zone put in place around the bomb prior to its destruction.
