    This is the moment Royal Navy divers detonated a 1000lb Second World War bomb off the Tyneside coast.

    The device was discovered by fisherman on Wednesday just before 5.30pm, as they caught the object in their nets.

    The crew of were fishing around three miles off Souter Point in South Shields when they brought up the suspected bomb.

    The bomb was then transported to Whitley Bay so that it could be examined but on the advice of Royal Navy bomb disposal experts, the device was lowered back onto the sea bed.

    It was later detonated one-and-a-half miles away from the Whitley Bay coast, reports the Chronicle.

    A spokesman for the Royal Navy said members of their northern diving group examined the device and found it posed a threat.
