The colossal mass of plastic waste taking over the Caribbean

A huge mass of plastic bottles, cutlery and polystyrene plates has been found floating in the Caribbean. The ‘sea of plastic’ stretches for miles, from horizon to horizon.

Underwater photographer Caroline Power was there to witness it first-hand. She told 5 live it was “one of the most disgusting things you could imagine to see in the water.”

“The amount of rubbish in the ocean is just overwhelming.”
