The well-preserved wreck of a World War One German submarine, possibly still containing the bodies of 23 crew members, has been found off the Belgian coast, Belgian broadcaster VRT said Tuesday.

The submarine would have had 22 crew and a commander on board, West Flanders provincial governor Carl Decaluwe told De Standaard newspaper.

He said the "impact damage was at the front but the submarine remains closed, and there are 23 people still onboard".

Of the 11th such wreckage found in the Belgian waters, this vessel is said to be the best preserved, the BBC reported.

Hazard points to key factor in Chelsea turnaround
Kenedy has not played since being sent home from Chelsea's pre-season tour of China following offensive social media posts. Chelsea have been cautious with Hazard but Conte said was for the best given the manager's own experience with injuries.


The wreck was found in the summer by Thomas Termote, a diver and expert in marine archaeology, but its exact location is being kept secret to deter treasure-hunters.

The use of submarines in World War One to disrupt British trade routes in the English Channel and the North Sea was a key part of Germany's military tactics.

UB-II submarines, commonly known as U-boats, were built in 1915 and 1916.
