Rotting wrecks make final voyage (UK)
A WWII minesweeper and a torpedo boat are among 10 sunken vessels being raised from the entrance to the Forth and Clyde Canal.
The £1.5m clean up aims to transform and revitalise Bowling Harbour in West Dunbartonshire by April.
British Waterways Scotland described the wrecks as "a safety hazard" and said they would be broken up.
Propellers from some of the boats will go on display on the harbour side when the improvements are completed.
