Find solves WW1 sinking riddle.

Army divers have found the wreck of a World War One destroyer off Hoy in Orkney.

HMS Pheasant went down in mysterious circumstances in 1917, with the loss of 102 lives.

But now a team of Army divers believe they have solved the riddle .

Team spokesman Major Joe Bright said: "We found that the ship's boiler had exploded. Pieces of the engine room scattered about, and the funnels were also visible.

"We are pretty sure the remains are those of the Pheasant "
