New footage released on Tuesday has revealed the extent of damage to the Nord Stream 1 pipeline, which runs under the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany.
The footage, published by the Swedish newspaper Expressen, shows a tear in the pipeline, with 165 feet of it either being destroyed or buried under the seabed, according to the Daily Mail.
80 meters under the surface, a deep trench can also be seen where the gas pipeline used to lie.
