WWII Dornier Do-17 bomber raised from the Channel

Help

A German bomber from WWII has been raised from the sea bed in the English Channel.

The Dornier Do-17 aircraft was shot down off the Kent coast more than 70 years ago during the Battle of Britain.

Believed to be the only intact example of its kind in the world, it has lain in 50ft (15m) of water on the Goodwin Sands.

Nick Higham reports from the salvage barge.
