A British aeronatical engineer claims a grid he discovered on the ocean floor off the coast of west Africa could be the fabled lost city of Atlantis.
Google adament underwater grid lines are not the lost city of Atlantis.
But cold water has been poured on the idea by internet search giant Google, which says it is highly unlikely.The grid is situated about 620 miles off west Africa in an area called the Madeira Abyssal Plane.
It consists of a series of cross-cross lines within a rectangluar boundary about 3.5 miles down.
It was spotted by Bernie Bamford from Chester using a underwater exploration tool Google Ocean.
Mr Bamford says the image looks like a "man-made aerial map" of a city.
