Restoration starts on HMS Alliance submarine in Gosport
Work has started to save the World War II era submarine HMS Alliance, based at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport, Hampshire.
It will be a memorial to 5,300 British submariners who gave their lives in service between 1904 and the present day.
The vessel, which is on display on the quayside outside the museum, had begun to fall into the sea.
The museum said it had been given £3.4m in lottery funding and the rest through funds and pledges. Efforts continue to meet a shortfall of £400,000.
