Mateusz Morawiecki, the Polish prime minister, has said that the incident concerning the three Spanish divers who were rescued from the Baltic Sea over the weekend did not pose any threat to Poland's critical infrastructure.
Mateusz Morawiecki, the Polish prime minister, has asked the country's security services to prepare a comprehensive report on three Spanish divers who were rescued from the sea near the port of Gdansk over the weekend.
The three Spanish divers who have been rescued by the Polish Maritime Search and Rescue Services in the Baltic Sea, lacked a motorboat licence and did not have permission to dive, according to Poland's police.
Rescuers recovered the last body on Tuesday of three divers who died during a training exercise in a flooded coal mine in south-western Poland.
Rescuers from the State Fire Service have located the bodies of two divers who disappeared during a training mission at a flooded mine in Sobótka, south-western Poland.
The detonation on Tuesday concluded the operation to remove the dangerous 5.4-tonne Tallboy bomb at the bottom of a channel in Swinoujscie, a Baltic port city in the far northwest of Poland. There were no immediate reports of injuries.
VIDEO: If the unexploded ‘Tallboy’ bomb dropped by the RAF during World War Two goes off, a seismic wave could threaten nearby port infrastructure and bomb shrapnel could break through the water’s surface threatening local residents. Above ground, the bomb has a destructive range of two kilometres.
Practically untouched for decades, the wreck contains items ranging from military vehicles to porcelain, as well as many mysterious boxes with unknown contents, which are already capturing people’s imagination.
In mid-October, divers of the 8th Coastal Defence Flotilla will start work on neutralising the Tallboy bomb discovered at the bottom of the Piastowski Canal in Swinoujscie (northwestern Poland). It was one of the largest air bombs to be used during World War II.
Polish Navy divers on Monday recovered three World War II aerial bombs from the Baltic Sea off Kołobrzeg (northwestern Poland).
