Plastic waste boat makes waves on the Thames

What's thought to be one of just two boats made almost completely from waste plastic was launched on the Thames this morning.


On board was the Conservative MP Therese Coffey, a group of girl guides, and the environmental campaigners who made the vessel.


They hope to send a clear and clean message to others about plastic pollution.
