It seems that the SS Montgomery is making noises.

EVACUATION ALERT after ‘humming noise’ heard at EXPLOSIVE Thames wreck SS Montgomery

"A group of Thames estuary mud walkers have reported that there is currently a humming noise coming from the wreck of the SS Montgomery.

The wrecked ship resting between Essex and Kent that has enough live explosives on board to potentially redraw the map of Northern Europe.

A team of experts from Southend are currently at the site of the wreckage, and it has now been confirmed that there is also a quiet hissing sound and the occasional ‘puff’ of smoke.

Shortly after 7pm this evening, naval chiefs activated an evacuation order as a precaution, and everyone living within 200m of the wreckage has now been ordered to leave their homes and businesses immediately. . . "


The report is a bit panting and wide-eyed, what with dire threats of NW Europe being rearranged - still, if the ca1400 tons of gear does give it up, I guess N Kent and S Essex will have some good surfing for a while.

Anybody close to the site? And-to our resident EOD/ATO experts-is the cargo still viable after so many years?

Are you sure it's not a spoof site?
"
The cause of the hissing noise and buzzing is currently unclear, but we have heard unconfirmed reports that a child was spotted throwing pebbles into the exclusion zone from a fishing boat this morning.

Although experts have advised the public that a full explosion is ‘almost very nearly inconceivably impossible,’ Essex and Kent social media accounts are already full of people who have spotted Anderson shelters in neighbouring gardens."

Definitely genuine news.
‘As a precaution, we are using tidal currents to nudge the SS Montgomery wreck towards North Kent as much as possible – this plan has been helped by the fact that all Kent naval security crews are currently on training exercises in The Netherlands.’

‘Even if the wreck does detonate, the worst that will happen will be a bit of flooding on Two Tree Island and perhaps the total destruction of Canvey, possibly.’

@Forastero , @Sixty , @Guns et al - guess one of you should treat this with the contempt it deserves.
It's not a spoof, the whole lot has just gone up in a massive, underwater explosion. The picture below was taken from a passing drone that was being used to smuggle 80's porn, screech and tubes of rat pack condensed milk into the MCTC at Colchester.



The black dots are smuggler boats being used to bring in cheap fags booze and Apfelkorn from the continent.

On a slightly serious note, I've not heard anyone come up with any solution to the Montgomery issue in the past twenty years or so. It seems to be "leave it alone and it becomes someone else's problem". Some people living locally say they're scared of a possible explosion - so why do they live there?

If it went up and re-shaped a bit of coastline, some of the damage would certainly be an improvement.

I hope the Stally that's on it's way across the sea from BAOR can ride that out

Uh-oh.

Bugger-think you might be right.

There's a further headline about Corbyn being on target to win the GE: tsk, never saw that coming.
Ah, the good old SNN. Read more about them on their web site.
