Reuters use "Titanic" film footage in Russian North Pole story

There's been a long string of "scandals" featuring broadcasting companies. This latest one takes the biscuit.

Reuters have admitted illustrating a story about the Russian North Pole undersea flag-placing with footage from the 1997 film "Titanic". A 13 year-old Finnish schoolboy spotted the similarity of the pictures.

Whatever next?

UPDATE: To be fair to Reuters, the use of the Titanic footage originated from a Russian television station.
