Decorating a Christmas tree underwater

Most people put their Christmas decorations on trees or on their homes – but divers in Bosnia are putting them underwater.

About a dozen rescue divers in Santa hats plunged into the icy waters of a Bosnian lake to put up a tree to bring attention to a local nature reserve.

A park manager says budget cuts have put them in a tight financial position.

Divers say they will collect the decorations after the new year so they won’t have a negative effect on the environment.
