Chippenham divers clear River Avon of rubbish

Volunteers and divers in Chippenham are clearing the River Avon of rubbish today.

It follows the success of a 'River Tidy' In December when more than 40 shopping trolleys, some of which had been there more than 20 years, were pulled out by scuba divers at Town Bridge.

Volunteers from Calne Divers and Chippenham Angling Club will be leading the tidy-up.
