BOMB disposal teams were due to blow up a piece of wartime munition off the Island this morning (Friday) after it was dredged-up in Portsmouth Harbour.
"Divers of the Royal Navy’s Southern Diving Unit were called to the scene, lowered the device to the seabed and carried out a controlled explosion at around 8.30am."
