Scientists to study surfers' poo

It might sound disgusting but scientists hope a new study of surfers' poo will help them learn more about water pollution.

As part of the Beach Bums project the poo of regular surfers and non-surfers will be compared.

As surfers swallow a lot of water while they're hitting the waves, it's thought the differences between the poo will show scientists what sea water can do to the human body.
