* Italy / Submarine / Story #4037390

Britain's Royal Navy says it's looking into claims by an Italian diver that he has located the long-lost wreck of the HMS P311 submarine, which was sunk off Sardinia during World War II.

In video from the dive - obtained exclusively by The Associated Press - the submerged wreck can be seen resting on the seabed off the isle of Tavolara.

Diver Massimo Bondone says he found the P311 at a depth of 80 metres (262 feet) during the dive last weekend.

A member of the Orso diving club, which provided logistics for the dive, said the submarine was positively identified by the two Chariot "human torpedoes" affixed to the outside.
