Divers search for £20K golf balls in Irish lake

Divers have begun a search of an Irish lake for what they believe could be some of the world's rarest golf balls.

The gutta percha balls once belonged to golfing legend Old Tom Morris, who won the Open four times in the 1860s.

He hit 20 balls into the lake while practising in County Donegal in 1891. They are said to be worth £20,000 each.

Mark Simpson reports.
