WATCH | Footage of SS Chrysopolis. Wrecked 1918, off the coast of Southport

Southport resident Paul Ruddock has captured spectacular aerial footage of the famous SS Chrysopolis wreck off our coast.

The SS Chrysopolis ran aground on the Spencers Bank in fog on 14 February 1918. She was on a voyage from Genoa to Liverpool with a cargo of copper ore. During attempts to refloat her using two tugs, her back was broken and she became a total loss. A gale sprang up, resulting in her 38 crew and a further four salvors being rescued by the Southport lifeboat.

Readers are advised NOT to visit wrecks along our coastline, they are legally protected and in extremely dangerous locations.
