'Ghost fishing' clean-up begins in Scapa Flow

A major effort to clean up abandoned fishing equipment has been taking place in the waters of Scapa Flow in Orkney.

A team of divers spent days removing "ghost-fishing" gear which is no longer controlled by fishermen but poses a threat to marine wildlife.

Creels, lobster pots and a few unexpected items were removed from the water.

BBC Scotland's David Delday reports from Orkney.
