Portsmouth harbour.

By Mollycat
............. lot of activity going on deepening the channel. The new aircraft carriers are due later this year and dredging has been on going for a number of months. During that time four unexploded bombs have been found. the latest last week. All shipping movement is suspended, Gunwharf and Spice Island no go areas. Navy bomb disposal divers take the bomb to the middle of the Solent before detonating it. More are likely before the job is completed. The versions shows dredgers out in the Solent.
