Ellie explores a wreck

In March 2004, HMS Scylla was deliberately sunk off the coast of Cornwall, creating the first manmade reef in Europe. Over the past eight years the reef has attracted a host of remarkable marine life, but recently disaster struck when a suspected illegal fishing net got caught on the wreck destroying much of the delicate eco system. Ellie Harrison takes to the water with marine biologist Paul Cox to investigate the reef and the extent of the damage.
