It is a century since the luxury steamship RMS Titanic met its end in the North Atlantic, plunging two miles to the ocean floor after colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage in the early hours of 15th April 1912.
More than 1,500 people lost their lives in the disaster.
In the decades since, Titanic has inspired countless books and several notable films while continuing to make headlines.
Of the 3 ships in the Titanic family the third ship was to be called the Gigantic, however, after the Titanic disaster this was changed to Britannic. Launched on 26th Feb 1914 she had more lifeboat davits than the Titanic and a double skin. Britain was fighting the first world war, at this time and the government commandeered her and used her as a hospital ship. The ship made only six voyages before she struck a mine in the Mediterranean Sea and sank in less then an hour with the loss of 30 people .
