In Pictures: U-boat operation

U-534, the UK's only full-size World War II German U-boat, is being split into four sections to be moved to a new location.


The rusting vessel, one of only four left in the world, was originally sunk by RAF depth charges near Denmark in 1945.


Engineers are using diamond cutters to break up the submarine. It will then be moved in sections by floating crane down the water.


Merseytravel is to create a new tourist attraction at its Woodside terminal which will allow visitors to walk through the sections of the U-boat.
