Bigbury Bay, Devon

Bigbury divers treated for bends
Two divers in Devon are being treated for the bends, a disease caused by returning to the suface too quickly.
Brixham Coastguard said the two men had been diving at a wreck in Bigbury Bay, near Plymouth, when they made a rapid ascent at about 1130 BST.

They were taken to the Diving Diseases Research Centre (DDRC) in Plymouth, where they are being treated for decompression sickness.

The divers are believed to be from the Surrey area.

The DDRC has three hyperbaric decompression chambers used to treat the disease.

Lets hope they are both OK
