Unexploded Hand Grenade Found in Trent & Mersey Canal

An unexploded WWII hand grenade was pulled from the Trent & Mersey Canal by a magnet fisherman near Shobnall Marina in Derbyshire.  An Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team was mobilised and they destroyed the grenade in a nearby field.

This is the just the latest in a slew of similar incidents affecting magnet fishermen across the country, a reflection that nobody knows what lurks at the bottom of our historic canal system!
