Ince's global senior partner Julian Clark believes he has a way into talks with the UK government over a project to salvage the anchor of the historic liner Empire Windrush.

The UK law firm is part of a project to provide a permanent monument to the Windrush Generation, the Caribbean immigrants who arrived on the liner to help rebuild the country after World War II.

The vessel sank in 1954 and funds are now needed to mount a recovery expedition off Algeria, led by explorer David Mearns.
