    I saw the submarine on Facebook and it seems pretty impressive, I think I've only dived a couple of subs (UB-116 in Scapa Flow and I-169 in Truk) but thing as impressive as that beast. Was a big improvement once it was all cleared of nets.

    Great photos. Amazing wreck with lots of artefacts. Do you have to wear orange drysuits when ghost fishing?

    There's quite a few subs around Dover. Interesting to dive upon especially when you see the size of the hatches; 18 year olds are thin!

    One of the things about the wrecks is the sheer amount of fish swimming around them. That there's nets caught up means the fish are safe from the trawlers.

    The Dutch team are sponsored by Ursuit hence the orange drysuits
