Mona's Queen Dunkirk anchor to be restored in Merseyside

BBC Isle of Man's Sarah Corker looks back at what happened to the Steam Packet Company's Mona's Queen at Dunkirk in 1940

An anchor from an Isle of Man vessel which went down during World War Two is being restored in Merseyside after being retrieved from the seabed.

The Mona's Queen was one of three Steam Packet company ships lost during the Dunkirk landings in 1940.

Her anchor was recovered near France in June and is being restored at Cammell Laird ship yard.

Sarah Corker has been finding out what will happen to the historical relic when it finally returns to the island.
