The unique remains of a German Second World War Dornier bomber shot down in 1940 during the Battle of Britain lies on a barge at Deal in Kent after being raised from the 50ft of water on Goodwins Sands in the English Channel on Monday in a £350,000 operation which will see it find a home in the RAF museum.

Two of the plane’s four-man crew died when it was shot down by Hurricane fighters on 26 August, 1940
