Canterbury Divers members were undertaking a drift dive off Herne Bay in July when they discovered a sea squirt growing prolifically across the sea bed. The visibility, of at least 5m, helped to identify the highly invasive species Didemnum vexillum – this is the first time it has been recorded in the UK in offshore waters on the natural seabed.
In 2013, English Heritage (now Historic England) awarded Wessex Archaeology the Heritage at Risk – Designated Wrecks at Risk contract.
