trawler damaged by explosion in North sea

Gentlemen,
there was a small article in a daily paper last week about a trawler badly damaged in a explosion whilst fishing in the North sea, apparently one of the crew reported something dragging in the net followed b an explosion. The MoD are investigating to find out about what occurred, but the article stated that there was suspected to be over a million tons of ordnance lying around on the bottom. so it could have been a mine, bomb or shell, but it is interesting to note that stuff still goes off after many years underwater.
Anyway, wishing you all a very happy and covid free new year.
