UK: New map reveals locations of unexploded World War Two bombs





Maps showing the likely locations of thousands of unexploded bombs dropped during World War Two have been created for the first time.

Up to one in ten bombs dropped by the German Luftwaffe failed to detonate leaving a deadly legacy which still lies under the nation's streets and fields.

The new map will be used by builders to tell them the risks from unexploded bombs where they are working. Members of the public will also be able to access the map, which identifies 21,000 locations where there could be unexploded bombs.
