Watch: seabed near Filfa is full of bomb debris

A group of divers who went diving around Filfla were surprised by the amount of bomb debris deposited on the seabed near this island in the south of Malta.

Over the years the British military, using both aircraft and warships, used Filfla to practice on during military exercises.

Today fishing in the area cannot be carried out unless from a distance from the island while a person has to register to dive nearby.

One of the divers, Raniero Borg, uploaded a video of the dive that he and his friends went on where he even pointed out that around Filfla “there are more bombs than fish”.
