A fearless diver created an orange bobble inside a shark-infested tank at the London Aquarium in order to raise awareness of Age UK's Bobble Day.

The scheme is part of the charity's Spread the Warmth campaign, which is raising funds to help it cut the 250 deaths of older people caused by the cold every day in winter.

People made or bought bobbles, or wore orange clothes to show their support on 11 February.

The charity is encouraging supporters to post pictures of their bobbling activities on the Age UK website.
