A bomb from World War II exploded in England on Friday after authorities failed to defuse it.
The explosive device was discovered in the town of Great Yarmouth by a contractor who was working on a construction project.
On Thursday, England’s armed forces attempted to detonate the bomb by using a technique that aimed to create a slow burn of the explosive, but ultimately the technique failed and the bomb exploded.
Per the Norfolk Police, no one was injured from the blast.
Watch the moment it exploded here:

During Germany’s Blitz campaign, Nazi pilots dropped over 25,000 bombs on London and nearby ports.
Some of those bombs that were dropped never detonated, just like the recent bomb that was discovered in the town of Great Yarmouth.
Back in 2021, a bomb was discovered in Exeter, a town located southwest of London.
The army detonated the bomb through a controlled explosion but the blasts still caused severe damage to nearby properties.
