Navy begins defusing biggest World War Two bomb ever found in Poland

The five-tonne device, nicknamed ‘Tallboy’ and also known as an ‘earthquake bomb’, was dropped by the Royal Air Force in an attack on a Nazi warship in 1945. It was discovered last year during dredging close to the port city of Swinoujscie – formerly Swinemunde, a part of Germany – in the far northwest of Poland. A total of around 750 local residents are being evacuated from an area of 1.6 miles around the bomb and the operation is expected to last up to five days. The blast radius is 1.25 miles from the bomb (inset), with added protections in place beyond the immediate vicinity of the explosive.
