    "Europe’s first artificial diving reef – created 10 years ago today when a former Royal Navy frigate was sunk off the Cornish coast – has generated tens of millions of pounds for the local economy.

    HMS Scylla, an ex-Royal Navy Leander Class frigate, was sent to the bottom of Whitsand Bay on March 27, 2004, in spectacular fashion – watched by thousands of spectators.

    Since then, the wreck has enjoyed lasting success with thousands of dive trips generating an estimated £60 million over the last decade."
