Navy explosion of WWII mine off Pembrokeshire delayed

Plans to blow up a World War II mine found by divers off the Pembrokeshire coast have been delayed by the weather.

Royal Navy explosives experts were due on Tuesday to detonate the mine found in 25m of water on the seabed south of Skomer Island.

The mine has been moved to shallower waters and a cordon has been created for shipping to stay at a safe distance.

The controlled explosion may not now take place until next week.
