full story: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-50260427A submarine that has been missing for almost 80 years has been found.
HMS Urge left Malta for the north coast of Egypt on 27 April 1942 and was never seen again.
The vessel, which was adopted by the people of Bridgend during World War Two, was officially reported missing in the Mediterranean on 29 April 1942.
A marine archaeology survey team from the University of Malta made the discovery.
Professor Timmy Gambin said the wreck was "in absolutely fantastic condition".
"It's sitting upright on the seabed, very proud, in the direction it was ordered to take on its way to Alexandria," he told BBC Breakfast.
