'Holy grail' of shipwrecks laden with treasures worth £12.6 BILLION that sank to the bottom of the Caribbean 300 years ago was found using an autonomous robot

The San Jose off the coast of Colombia contains one of the most valuable hauls of treasure ever lost at sea
62-gun, three-masted galleon, went down on June 8, 1708, with 600 people during a battle with British ships
REMUS 6000 autonomous robot used sonar to find the San Jose under 2,000 feet (600 metres) of water
Exact location of the shipwreck is secret due to a legal dispute regarding who owns the wealth of treasures
