Work begins on £116million life-size replica of the TITANIC in China which will allow visitors to relive the sinking which claimed 1,500 lives
The construction of a controversial £116million life-size replica of the Titanic began in China yesterday.
A keel-laying ceremony and fireworks marked the start of work in the southwestern Sichuan province.
The replica plans sparked controversy when it was announced the design would include a simulation of the iceberg crash that sank the original ship in the Atlantic Ocean on April 15, 1912. Some 1,500 people died in the disaster.

China has a warped idea of what entertainment is – Fish frozen into ice rinks, polar bears in shopping malls and now this? Nutjobs!
