A British Diver Records Shocking Images of Himself Swimming Through a Sea of Plastic Waste Off the C
Shocking footage has emerged of tonnes of plastic waste in the Ocean near Bali.
British Diver Rich Horner captured the images while diving at Manta Point, which is located around 20km away from Bali, Indonesia.
Cups, wrappers, and bags can be seen everywhere, all while tropical fish swim around in the waste.
Horner said that the ocean current carried the "lovely gift" to the area.
8 million tons of plastic is dumped into the ocean each year, and Indonesia is the world's second largest plastic polluter, producing 130,000 tons of plastic waste a day.
The country is making efforts to clean up the area, but this video shows the scale of the problem.
