Entries are now open for annual underwater photo competition.

AN under water photography competition is taking place in the waters around Lundy Island this weekend.

The fifth annual Splash In! event takes place on Saturday, with plenty of great prizes up for grabs.

Divers will be able to explore the island’s many reefs and wrecks, including the Iona II, a Clyde built paddle steamer that sank off Lundy island in 1864.

An Iona II Dive Trail is being launched on the day to give divers more information about the vessel’s history and resident marine life.
