A perfectly intact gun carriage has been lifted from the Thames. It is from the huge 17th Century warship, the London. Experts say that this is the best example of this naval equipment from the period in existence.

A team has been diving the Thames Estuary all summer to rescue the remains of the Wreck of the London before it's lost to us forever. They've been filming their dives and are making some intriguing discoveries about why the vessel exploded and sank back in 1665.
