Divers raise slate wagon from Llyn Padarn with balloon
Scuba divers have used a giant inflatable balloon to raise a wagon once used to transport Welsh slate more than 110 years ago from the bottom of a lake in Snowdonia.
Members of Rhosneigr Sub-Aqua Club, Anglesey, were diving at Llyn Padarn, in Llanberis, when the wagon was found.
It had been used to transport slate from the nearby Dinorwic Quarry to Dinorwic seaport at Y Felinheli.
The wagon will now go on display at Llanberis Lake Railway's museum.
