Falmouth Harbour dredging trial begins

A six-month dredging trial has begun in Falmouth to look at the environmental impacts of digging a deeper channel which could attract more cruise ships.

Falmouth Harbour Commissioners said the work was needed to secure the future of the port.

However, protesters said the scheme would damage the environment and the livelihoods of fishermen.
