Fishing boat nets wartime mine

Fishing boat nets wartime mine – A fishing vessel picked up what was discovered to be an unexploded mine off the coast of Scotland, the Coastguard said.

The skipper of the Guess Again made a call to the Forth Coastguard after making the suspicious catch in the Firth of Forth at around 10pm on Monday.

A Royal Navy disposal team was called in and a controlled explosion was carried out two miles off Methill on the Fife coast.
