RAISED FROM THE DEEP.

Byline: SARAH KARUSH

THIS is the first picture of Russia's Kursk submarine since it was raised from the seabed.

Investigators prepared to board the vessel as it lay under a towing barge yesterday. They expect to find clues to why it sank in the Barents Sea 14 months ago, killing all 118 crew. But the Kursk's bow, which could hold most information, was left under the waves.

Without it, the cause of the accident may never be known.

As the sub was inspected in the Arctic port of Roslyakovo, British divers who helped raise it this month attended a service for the victims in Aberdeen.

North Sea diving veteran Paul Spark was part of the 90-strong crew of the Aberdeen-based DSND Mayo and helped prepare the sub for the lift.

He said: "It was an honour and a privilege to help the Russians return the Kursk to home port."
