    A daring scrapman transformed his Land Rover into a '007 submarine' before driving it underwater while holding his breath. Nathan Gibbons, 34, from Chesterfield, Derbyshire, hatched a plan to make his 1987 Range Rover Classic amphibious after he and friends Andrew Tuffs, 36, and Blake Capuano, 29, drowned its engine driving through a river in April.  The father-of-three was able to plunge the car underwater and drive it through a 8ft-deep pond in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, for 15 seconds - leaving only the duct-taped engine 'snorkel' and roof visible. He has since declared he felt like a 'rural James Bond' while pulling off the stunt as it reminded him of Roger Moore's 007 driving the amphibious Lotus Esprit S1 underwater in the 1977 Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me.  Nathan Gibbons, 34, from Chesterfield, Derbyshire, plunges his 1987 Range Rover Classic amphibious into a pond in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire The father-of-three drives the vehicle through the 8ft-deep pond leaving only the duct-taped engine 'snorkel' and the top of the roof visible Nathan Gibbons (centre) decided to convert his 1987 Range Rover Classic amphibious after...

    Dolphins are able to avoid decompression sickness when deep in the ocean by consciously dropping their own heart rates before diving, a new study revealed.  The condition, also known as the bends, occurs when dissolved gases come out of solution in bubbles and can affect just about any body area and can be fatal.  Researchers from the Fundación Oceanogràfic worked with dolphins to discover how they handle diving and depth changes without developing the condition. They found that dolphins actively slow down their hearts before diving, and can even adjust their heart rate depending on how long they plan to dive. Their findings, published in the journal Frontiers in Physiology, provide new insights into how marine mammals conserve oxygen and adjust to pressure while diving. Researchers from the Fundación Oceanogràfic worked with dolphins to discover how they handle diving and depth changes without developing the condition The research team worked with three male bottlenose dolphins specially trained to hold their breath for different lengths of time on instruction. Dr Andreas Fahlman, lead author, said 'We trained the dolphins for a long...
