Paradise lost!

Paradise lost: Shocking video shows the miles-wide sea of plastic and trash covering a section of the Caribbean

  • Footage of waters near Roatan, an island off the coast of Honduras, shows a massive heap of plastic waste 
  • A diver is seen leaping from a boat into the filthy waters and wading through the thick layer of rubbish 
  • British videographer Caroline Power said the unbelievable images show our planet is ‘choking’ on waste
  • The rubbish was washed into the sea from Guatemala, carried on rivers swollen by the recent rainy season
