UK Government officials continue to work closely with regional authorities to protect the wrecks of Royal Navy vessels, share information and support each other's interests where possible to protect these sites and to ensure the last resting places of our people are adequately protected. Where we have evidence of desecration of the wrecks of Royal Navy vessels, we will take appropriate action.
