Divers recover World War Two Highball bomb

A team of divers have recovered a historic Highball bouncing bomb from a loch in Argyll.

Members of the British Sub-Aqua Club and the Royal Navy have successfully lifted one of them, and hope to recover at least one more of the devices.

More than 200 of the spherical bombs, designed by Barnes Wallis, were tested at Loch Striven during World War Two but were never used in battle.
