Heavy rains have washed a Second World War Russian tank ashore in the Danube River in Austria. Munitions experts in Bad Deutsch deactivated 50 live shells, grenades and machine gun rounds before the machine was taken to a military museum.

Central Europe has been hit by record rainfall in the last week and experts believe this coupled with increased boat traffic could have dislodged the tank after 65 years at the bottom of the river.
