Several decades after the end of the two world wars, explosive material still represents a significant potential danger in the North and Baltic Sea's. Independent experts have calculated that there are approx. 1.6 million tons of explosives on the seabed. This is a particular danger in the development / installation of offshore wind parks.

  • At least 115 deaths and 35 serious injuries have been caused by unexploded ordnance from second and first world wars since 1945.
  • An estimated 400,000 tonnes of munitions lie at the bottom of the North Sea.
  • The National archives document that Beauforts Dyke contains over 1 million tonnes of unexploded munitions.
  • Many areas of the world's marine environment have been contaminated by unexploded ordnance (UXO) as a result of years of conflict, military use and sea dumping leaving behind a legacy of UXO.

Of the mines that were laid around the British Isles during WW2, only around 15-30% were recovered after the war. There are no records for mine sweeping following WW1, so recovery is likely to have been even lower. The simple maths suggest that, even allowing for those that have been detonated or recovered to date, there are likely to be in region of hundreds of thousands of mines still at large around the coast of the UK.
