Divers target discarded 'ghost' fishing gear off Pembrokeshire

Volunteer environmental divers are carrying out a two-day clean-up off the Pembrokeshire coast.

Divers from Neptune's Army of Rubbish Cleaners (NARC) are collecting stray fishing equipment, known as ghost gear.

On Thursday, they recovered 17 lobster pots along with fishing nets and rope.

The dives have been funded by the animal welfare charity World Animal Protection UK, which said ghost gear is "a massive global problem" affecting marine life such as dolphins and seals.
