Divers in Staffordshire decided a street party was not the only way to mark the royal wedding.

The National Scuba Diving Centre in Tamworth organised a dive party, where, for 12 hours, divers went underwater to toast the happy couple.

The event, at Dosthill Quarry, was open to spectators with a large screen so no-one would miss anything.

Chief instructor Ian Forster said a royal wedding was a rare event and a chance to do something different.
