Fishing pensioners shocked as mine explodes in pond

Two Dutch pensioners had a shock when the pond they were fishing in exploded.

A German mine blew up after lying unnoticed in the water since the Second World War.

Joost Westdorp and Sjuul Eerdmans were unharmed, but say the water rose 100 metres into the air and they were showered with dead fish.

The banks of the pond in Enschede were left littered with bits of carp, perch and pike.

Army bomb disposal experts investigated and found the device had been a German mine with four kilos of explosive.

De Telegraaf newspaper reports the experts think the metal shield over the explosives had rusted through, causing it to go off.




Eeeks, Dave

It makes you wonder how many unexploded devices are left lying in the silt of lakes though.

Many moons ago I helped in a netting operation with the YWA on one of Nostel Priory's Lakes and when the net was finally gathered in one of the lads saw what he thought was a gas bottle, it turned out to be a bomb that had been dropped during WW2.
You have never seen so many people leg it so quickly as on that day

The bomb squad were called and they eventually removed it.

Peter as you can see by Alan's profile pic it's right - he is the one who takes the P##S. That carp in his arms was one that he was helping to stock, lol.

I have heard that the only good thing that Alan can do on a bank is make a fry-up
lol
