Numerous explosives (bombs, shells, torpedoes and mines) from the first and second World War are still on and in the bottom of the North Sea. Fishing vessels and dredgers regularly catch explosives in their nets and suction pipes. Found explosives can be reported to The Netherlands Coastguard.

Een speciaal schip, een zogeheten mijnenjager, van de marine ruimt een explosief op zee. Daarbij ontstaat een grote waterzuil.

The Coastguard informs the special departments for countermining of the Ministry of Defence and they will take care that the explosives will be cleared out as soon as possible.
