However the planned depth is estimated at 190ft – thus beyond the limits of recreational divers, but for tech divers the Lady Laura could offer a new challenge.

County Officials are awaiting final clearance from the Coastguard and its hoped that the sinking will be in January dependant on a three day weather window.
