Not another

First they found a bomb in a hotel in Torrevieja. Now they've found a torpedo in the sea.

The fishing boat Nuevo Pedro Loli, based in Torrevieja found a German World War II torpedo in the waters off Murcia.

The badly corroded torpedo, which was dated between 1939 and 1945, was located between Cabo de Palo and Isla Grosa and was hooked in the boats fishing nets.

The torpedo was taken to Capitanía Marítima by the crew of the Nuevo Pedro Loli. From there it was transferred to the Unidad Especial de Desactivación de Explosivos de la Armada in the port of Torrevieja.

Having analysed the projectile and removed the fuse, they have transferred it to the quarter of Algameca in Cartagena.
