A daring salvage operation is about to be launched to recover £4.5 billion of British wartime gold from wrecks in the north Atlantic.

In one of the most ambitious marine operations of its kind, the crew hopes to identify and eventually raise the first of three hauls of gold bullion with an estimated weight of 500 tonnes.
