Dr Innes McCartney, a historian, nautical archaeologist and honorary research fellow at Bournemouth University, has been examining the wreck, which is approximately 45m long and around 120m away from the centre of the planned cable route, and believes it could be the fabled UB-85.

“The features of this particular wreck, which is largely intact, confirm it as a UBIII-Class submarine, of which we know of two which were lost in the area - the more famous UB-85 and its sister boat UB-82," he said.

“While I can conclude that this wreck is likely to be one or the other, they would be practically impossible to tell apart, aside from the numbers painted on them in service, now obviously long gone.

“Unless a diver can find a shipyard stamp, we cannot definitively say but yes, we are certainly closer to solving the so-called mystery of UB-85 and the reason behind its sinking - whether common mechanical failure or something that is less easily explained.”

Gary Campbell, the keeper of the Official Sightings Register of the Loch Ness Monster, says reports from 1917 made it clear that sailors were aware of sea monsters that could damage their vessels.
