Mine Map Reveals “Explosive” Danger at Offshore Energy Sites
The location of unexploded mines and bombs around the UK coastline is revealed in a revolutionary online map designed to aid the developers of offshore energy projects like wind farms and cable laying.
The interactive risk map shares vital data about areas mined by the British and Germans during the wars, plus unexploded ordnance (UXO) from military armament training and munitions dumping. It also reveals previous UXO finds.
