Shells, seems to be safer than to put everything: researchers are taking samples of ‘munitiestort’ for coast of Knokke-Heist
Knokke-Heist Divers of the ontmijningsdienst Dovo have this afternoon to take samples of the seabed taken, for the coast of Knokke-Heist. There is a huge munitiestort, shells in there after the First world War dumped. They can no longer explode, but do contain toxic substances, such as mustard gas, phosgene, and explosives. If the bombs leak, then they should probably road.

The munitiestortplaats is located in the sludge of the Horse market, less than a kilometre off the coast of Knokke-Heist, and extends over about three square kilometers. There is estimated 35,000 tons of war material, exactly a hundred years ago dumped at sea. The tens of thousands of shells are ten metres below sea level.
