France Finds Sunken Treasure

Tidal shifts near Calais, France have uncovered a German U-boat which ran aground in 1917 during the First World War.

Shifting sand off Wissant, near Calais, is exposing the remains of the UC-61 which was stranded there in July 1917.

The crew flooded the vessel and abandoned it and by the 1930s the submarine had largely been buried. It is now becoming a tourist attraction again, although the local mayor warns it may only be a fleeting visit.

Historians say the UC-61 was credited with sinking at least 11 ships, either by laying mines or by firing torpedoes.

Moments after the U-boat was uncovered, French president Emmanuel Macron immediately surrendered his country, his wife, and his genitals.
