Underwater images of the sunken Russian cargo ship MV Swanland show the battered remains of the vessel.

The ship was taking limestone from Llanddulas, near Colwyn Bay, to the Isle of Wight when it was hit by a massive wave during a gale.

Just two of the eight-man crew survived when it sank in November 2011.

An inquest found their deaths were as a result of misadventure.

The images were captured as part of the Marine Accident Investigation Branch's investigation into the incident.
