Sculpture shows how much plastic is dumped in the Thames

The Port of London Authority is highlighting the amount of plastic dumped in the Thames each year with a new work of art.

A Bellyful of Plastic is made up from items found in the river, and which are commonly found in the stomachs of fish.

The sculpture is touring the capital and forms the centre piece of an event at the Museum of London Docklands.
