Forest workers are clearing trees and shrubs from a site in southwestern Poland under which two explorers claim there is a secret tunnel and a Nazi train, possibly containing armaments and precious minerals.

The two explorers claim they have located a hidden World War II tunnel with a Nazi armored train in it and local authorities in the city of Walbrzych take the information seriously.

On Tuesday, workers were removing vegetation from the indicated site, after military experts said it had to be cleared before they could inspect it.
