The remains of two of the earliest rocket engines used to propel astronauts to the moon have been recovered from the Atlantic Ocean floor.

The motors, which are more than 40 years old, were shed by Saturn 5 rockets during the Apollo programme that ran from 1969 to 1972.

Amazon, which funded the operation, says the engines will be restored and put on public display.
