Last place of 11 heroes from WW1 been discovered

The final resting place of 11 heroes whose boat sank during the First World War has finally been discovered.

During the conflict, British fishermen were pressed into becoming minesweepers in a "bloody but forgotten chapter of the First World War".

Nearly one in five of those who took part were killed, including a team of 11 onboard the St Ives, which hit a mine in the Fal Estuary, near Falmouth, Cornwall.
