Must read



Canadian police are looking into the deaths of five people killed in the implosion of the Titan submersible.

Superintendent Kent Osmond, of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, confirmed on Saturday it was looking into the circumstances of the deaths.

Parts from the sub were discovered on the sea floor on Thursday, only about 400m from the wreck of the Titanic.

The US Coast Guard said the vessel had suffered a catastrophic implosion which would have killed all those on board.

It has emerged that a number of engineering and deep sea experts, including a former employee, had raised serious concerns over the sub’s safety with the company’s boss

However, Stockton Rush – who also died in the incident – is said to have dismissed the concerns.

Many of them focussed on the carbon fibre used for the hull and the fact the submersible had not been certified as safe by outside agencies.
