Army and police investigating ordinance dropped from a plane 70 years ago

North Jutland Police are on the scene at Rubjerg Knude lighthouse near Lønstrup in north Jutland where a bomb apparently dropped during WWII has turned up in the dunes.

The army is on hand to investigate and destroy the bomb which was uncovered by high winds.

“We were notified at about 9 am yeaterday. There were strong winds yesterday that uncovered the bomb,” Jess Falberg from Nordjylland Police told DR Nyheder.

“Military bomb experts will destroy the bomb, which has been identified as British,  because it’s too dangerous to move,” said Falberg.

The area was cordoned off by the police and will remain closed until the bomb is disposed of.
