Missing British Divers' Bodies Recovered From Wreck of the HMS Scylla
The bodies of two divers that went missing during a dive on the wreck of the HMS Scylla have been recovered, according to a statement from Devon and Cornwall Police.
The two men failed to surface from a dive on the wreck on 3 September. A third diver who surfaced and raised the alarm survived and was subsequently treated for decompression sickness.
Devon and Cornwall Police said: 'The bodies of two divers, who failed to return to the surface while taking part in a planned dive at HMS Scylla on 3 September, have been recovered.
'One of the men, aged 40, from Plymouth, was found and recovered on 15 September. The second man, aged 49, from Saltash, was found and recovered on 12 October.
'Both men’s next-of-kin have been informed and the deaths are not being treated as suspicious. Files are being prepared for the coroner and police continue to support the families of both divers.'
HMS Scylla was a Leander-class frigate sunk as an artificial reef in 2004 in Whitsand Bay, Cornwall, UK, and is one of the UK's most popular wreck dives.
