(Telegraph): A National Geographic diver has died in Greece while on an underwater filming mission. Carl Spencer, 37 is believed to have died from decompression sickness – the bends – according to the country’s merchant marine ministry.

The British World War I hospital ship, and sister ship of the Titanic, sank off the Greek Aegean island of Kea in 1916 after hitting a mine, with the loss of 30 lives.
