Human-powered submarines race

For the first time an international human-powered submarine event is taking place in the UK.

Europe's largest freshwater tank, QinetiQ's Ocean Basin in Gosport, is the venue for this year's International Submarine Races event.

It is the first time the competition - which pits human-powered submarines against each other - has taken place outside the US.

The UK is represented by Bath University, which will be competing against two teams from Canada and three from the US.

Here engineers from the UK team explain how they have designed their submarine.
