19 August 2014 Last updated at 00:42 BST

A new search has begun in Myanmar for what is thought to be the heaviest bell ever.

The Dhammazedi Bell, estimated to weigh nearly 300 tonnes, is said to have fallen into a river near the capital, Yangon in 1608.

Despite numerous attempts to find it, the bell has so far eluded everyone who has tried to retrieve it.

Jonah Fisher reports.
