On the run .. with sharks

Have your say

DIVERS at Deep Sea World are aiming to run a mile for Sport Relief – underwater.

The One Mile Shark Challenge will see intrepid divers take it in turns to complete underwater laps of the aquarium’s giant 4.5-million-litre Underwater Safari display.

Celebrities Fred MacAulay and Dougie Vipond have agreed to brave shark-infested waters to complete the final laps on Tuesday – Valentine’s Day.

The divers aim to raise £600 for Sport Relief. Their Just Giving page can be accessed via the Deep Sea World website.

The attraction’s Aisling Thornton said: “Our amazing divers will go that extra mile – underwater”
