    Off the coast of the island of Lampedusa divers have been working to recover bodies from the migrant boat which sank last week. It is harrowing work as two of the divers explained. The bodies of more than 200 who perished have now been recovered. It’s believed at least 100 remain in the watery grave trapped inside the vessel. The boat carrying around 500 mainly Eritrean and Somali migrants capsized and sank throwing hundreds into the water. One hundred and fifty-five survivors were rescued.
