Devon divers tackle seabed litter in Plymouth

Divers are preparing to go litter picking, in the sea off the Devon coast.

Members of the British Sub Aqua Club will be taking part in the event in Plymouth Sound on Friday.

It is part of a series of events organised by charity Blue Mile which campaigns against pollution of the sea.

The club said it expected to find items like fishing nets which can trap fish and sea birds.

Chairman John Parlour said: "This is about encouraging people to take more responsibility, and to think about their actions."
