Just four metres underwater, two Japanese tanks from the Second World War have been discovered – after more than 60 years.

The forgotten tanks, each weighing 15 tons and armed with a cannon and two machine guns, have been captured on camera by Swiss diver, Franco Banfi.

The tanks have remained untouched in the murky waters of Makada Harbour since the end of the war in 1945.
