The wreck of a Spanish ship laden with treasure that was sunk by the British more than 300 years ago has been found, says Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos.

It has been described as the holy grail of shipwrecks, as the ship was carrying one of the largest amounts of valuables ever to have been lost at sea.

The Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos said the cargo was worth at least $1bn (662m).
