An unexploded wartime bomb has been detonated in the sea at Teignmouth.
The bomb was found by a local diver at 7.45 yesterday evening - he told the Coastguard, and they put a safety zone in place.
The surrounding area was evacuated, and a 1,000m exclusion zone, which extended 500m inland, was put in place.
We spoke to Claire Everitt, who works at the View Bar & Café, which was one of the areas evacuated.
The evacuation also closed roads and affected train services between Newton Abbot and Exeter.
The bomb was dragged out to sea by the Royal Navy for disposal, and it was detonated at 5.12pm.
The moment of the detonation was caught on camera:
