Huge underwater litter pick in the Lake District

Divers look for a different type of treasure!

Volunteer divers in the Lake District have joined in what's thought to be Britain's largest underwater litter pick.

They've been dredging tonnes of rubbish from the bottom of Lake Windermere, in the north of England.

Collectors found some pretty strange items, including traffic cones, sunglasses, and a child's scooter.

Some of the rubbish found will be used for sculptures in school art projects.
