Often unexploded bombs are still found on the Rhine and Ruhr, which explosives clearers then have to defuse.

Such huge specimens are rarer, like now in Essen.

Because of the high explosive power of the air mine, 11,000 people have to leave their homes.

Essen - Due to the discovery of a large aerial mine in Essen, around 11,000 people have to leave their apartments and houses this Wednesday (from 10.30 a.m.).

The British air mine has three impact detonators and a quantity of 840 kilograms of explosives.

An air mine with such explosive power has not existed in at least 20 years of city history, a spokeswoman said in advance.

The radius around the site, which must be completely cleared, is one kilometer, which is considerably larger than that of smaller duds.

Within a radius of a further 1000 meters, people are not allowed to be outdoors and should seek out parts of the building that are facing away from the bomb.

Eight old people's, care and handicapped facilities around the site in the Stoppenberg district are to be cleared as early as 8.30 a.m.

Two hours later, the evacuation of the remaining apartments and houses begins.

Restrictions on bus and rail traffic can be expected, according to the city.

An S-Bahn station will also be blocked.

Seven daycare centers are in the evacuation area and must remain closed.
