The Bermuda Triangle is an area of the western North Atlantic where ships supposedly disappear without a trace.

Norwegian scientists may have discovered why this happens: methane bubble explosions. They identified a series of half mile-wide, 150ft deep craters off the coast of Norway created by methane building up and popping beneath the seabed.

Researchers from the Arctic University of Norway told The Sunday Times: 'Multiple giant craters exist on the sea floor in an area in the west-central Barents Sea … and are probably a cause of enormous blowouts of gas," causing ships to sink.

Further details relating to the discovery will be revealed at the annual meeting of the European Geosciences Union in April.
