The Danish Maritime Authority confirms having received a report on the finding of a wreck off the west coast of Jutland.

The report also states that there are unexploded mines and torpedoes on board. However, currently the Danish Maritime Authority cannot confirm that the wreck found is UC-30.

On the basis of the report, the Danish Maritime Authority has issued a prohibition against diving operations, anchoring and fishing in a radius of 1,000 metres around the position of the wreck due to the danger presented by the unexploded ammunition on board.

The Danish Maritime Authority has informed the Danish Defence, which is to assess what to do with the unexploded ammunition on board the wreck.
