Divers map 'mysterious' wrecks off Chesil Beach

Nautical Archaeology Society photogrammetry to uncover secrets of wreck sites.
A dive team is hoping to uncover some secrets of shipwrecks just off Dorset's Chesil Beach.

The identity of two wrecks, although they've been the focus of investigations for over 10 years, remain a mystery.

Dives by the Nautical Archaeology Society and Maritime Archaeology Trust have been disrupted by the weather, this week, but photogrammetry surveys of the wreck sites have been made and 12 divers have been trained-up to help on future dives.

BBC Radio Solent's Steve Harris spoke to Peta Knott, the Education Officer at the Nautical Archaeology Society.
