Scapa Flow: Bodies of divers recovered in Orkney

A specialist police team has recovered the bodies of two divers from Scapa Flow in Orkney.

They are believed to be the bodies of two Dutch nationals who were diving on a wreck in the area at the end of last month.

A major air and sea search was launched when the pair failed to surface from a dive on the German warship Brummer.

They were located earlier this week by a team of local divers. Formal identification has yet to take place.
