UNDERWATER AGENT: A Guardia Civil diver

A BRITISH diver has died off the coast of Cartagena, Murcia.

The body of the diver was recovered from a 99-year-old shipwreck.

The 50-year-old was on a dive with three other divers, also Brits, who called emergency services when their companion was 45 minutes late for their scheduled meeting.

Agents from the Guardia Civil Underwater Activities Special Group (GEAS) recovered the diver’s body from the ancient wreckage named Stanfield.
