BOMB disposal experts have blown up a torpedo head which was trawled up in the nets of a fishing boat off the Devon coast.

The device was brought up by the Katherine M on Sunday evening about a mile south of Plymouth breakwater, BBC News reported.

A spokesman for Brixham Coastguard said it was not known where the ordinance came from.

A temporary exclusion zone was put in place while the torpedo head was detonated by Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD).
