One image shows a large, white piece of curved metal while another bit of debris was filled with cables and other mechanical parts.

The debris was covered by large tarpaulin sheets before being lifted away by cranes.

Five people were killed, including three British citizens, when the submersible is believed to have suffered a catastrophic implosion while attempting to view the wreck of the Titanic.

A frantic search and rescue operation commenced on 18 June after the vessel lost communication with its mother ship, but pieces of debris were found about 487m from the wreck of the Titanic five days later.

The three British citizens on board were billionaire Hamish Harding, and Pakistani businessman Shahzada Dawood and his 19-year-old son Suleman.

Shahzada’s wife said yesterday the pair were “best friends” who “belonged together”.

Titanic expert Paul-Henri Nargeolet and the chief executive of OceanGate, the company that owned the submersible, Stockton Rush, were also killed in the implosion.
