It is 60 years since the Severn Railway Bridge disaster which saw two tanker barges – the Wastdale H and the Arkendale H – collide in fog near to Sharpness.

The two barges were then caught in the tide and collided with a railway bridge which collapsed. Five men lost their lives.

New drone footage gives us a close-up view of the remains of the shipwrecked vessels.
