Has anyone who has had their DNA tested come back with Doggerland as an ancestral home?

I got it on my 23andme results..


Apparently an area of Northern England that is now underwater. I'm just curious as to whether there's a largeish or small number of people who can track back to that area.

Apparently this was formerly mentioned as a possible point of origin for certain haplogroups but I have the impression that more recent evidence refutes that idea. I’m not versed in that topic and may be wrong. DNA research is developing very fast...faster than they can update their reports. I do know that there have been occasional archaeological finds brought up from the sea floor. The North Sea is very shallow in places and was at least partially above sea level during the ice age.
