Wreck of UK trawler found after 60 years

Norwegian divers have found the wreck of the British trawler "Laforey" which stranded off the western coast of Norway nearly 60 years ago. Twenty UK fishermen lost their lives in the wreck.

The "Laforey" went down in the early hours of Monday morning, February 8th 1954, after it hit a reef near the coastal city of Florø, in heavy seas and driving snow.

Only two of the 20-man crew were found at the time, and the actual position of the wreck has not been found until now.
