Huge knitted scarf put on submarine

Waiting for Video...

A HUGE 500ft scarf has been wrapped around a submarine in Gosport.

Knitters from across the area helped make the scarf, which is draped around the conning tower of Second World War era HMS Alliance, at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum.

And a 705ft scarf, made by just one woman, is on display along the walls inside the museum building, and on submarines Holland 1 and X24.

The scarves are made up of 1,337 brightly coloured squares, each sewn together.

More than 200 people from 40 local groups helped create the scarf.

It comes as the museum is running a mult-million pound regeneration of the submarine.
