The AFM patrol boat P29 was yesterday scuttled at Cirkewwa after the go-ahead was given by the Malta Environment and Planning Authority.

The boat, which is 62 metres long, 7.2 metres wide and 16 metres high, now forms part of a series of wrecks for diving enthusiasts.

The vessel was sunk between Cirkewwa Point and Lantern Point in about 35 metres of water around 170 metres off shore.
