'Fishing for litter' project is launched to clean up the seas

Fishermen sailing around the east coast of Britain are being encouraged to collect rubbish from the sea and bring it ashore, in a project to help the environment.

The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust is providing fishermen with bags so that marine litter can be collected easily, and brought inland for disposal.

Paul Murphy reports.
