It's been confirmed today that a specialist dive will be conducted early next week to film a submarine from the Second World War sunk off the coast of Malin Head.

The Dive is part of proposals to raise the German U-Boat, which was scuttled intact at the end of the war at a depth of 70 metres 16 miles off the Coast of Malin Head.

The idea to raise the submarine was first proposed on Highland Radio and has now achieved international backing.

It's hoped the U-Boat can become a major tourism attraction for the North West and a memorial to the thousands of people killed in the Battle of the Atlantic during the Second World War.
