as Plymouth Argyle sealed promotion with three games to spare.

Andy Birkett got in amongst the celebrations.


Six long seasons of English football English football sports here.


The administration, the heartbreak of


And I've seen promotions and these boys went

Well, Exeter city's promotion push suffered a minor setback today


with a defeat against Cambridge United.


Meanwhile, Torquay United had to beat Braintree Town


to keep their National League survival hopes alive.


There's celebrations as well there before this match, the chances of


Torquay avoiding relegation looks very slim but this win against


fellow relegation strugglers Braintree town has given them a


fighting chance of staying in the National League. It started badly


with Manny Parry putting Braintree in front after just eight minutes,


took united were looking very nervous but then, Brett Williams had


a goal disallowed for offside but that seems to fire took united up.


Minutes later, he got an equaliser, and puts them in front in the second


half and although it was very nervy for the last half-hour, in the end,


it was Jordan league within late goal and as you can imagine, fans


are delighted. That was amazing. Taking it to the last game, it was

disallowed but it sparked is a little bit and great credit to the


last comeback and equalised so soon after, otherwise it might have

they're doing to help clean up our seas.


Marine litter and discarded fishing gear has been blamed for killing


But now the fishermen are working with charities and other industries


to tackle the problem as Eleanor Parkinson reports.


These fishermen are not just hauling up fish.


They have to sift through their catch to get rid of the rubbish


but they're not throwing it back overboard.


Instead, they put it in special sacks they've been given


and they bring it all back to port to put in a dedicated skip.


Fish isn't the only thing we catch, unfortunately, at sea.


We're catching a lot of plastic bags and mainly plastics.


We bring in about two one-tonne bags every trip.


I do a six-day trip and I bring to one-tonne bags a week.


And these are the bags that we give the fishing boats.


And if you look through the skip, you can find just about anything.


The bags on the boats are provided by a project

whether it's a rope, plastic, polythene sheet

It is of particular danger to seals, because they really highly

In the south-west, attitudes to marine litter are changing
