DIVERS PAY RESPECTS TO KURSK VICTIMS.

THE 118 men who died on board the Russian nuclear submarine Kursk have been remembered by British divers who helped raise the vessel from the seabed.

Representatives from the Russian navy were also present in Aberdeen for a memorial in honour of the victims of last August's tragedy.

Divers from Aberdeen-based DSND played an important role in the operation to raise the Kursk from the bed of the Barents Sea, where it had rested since an explosion ripped through it, killing all on board.

The diving team arrived back in port on board DSND Mayo during the weekend, and yesterday joined five senior Russian naval officers to remember those who died and the operation to raise the vessel.

CAPTION(S):
