Anyone who watched Blue Planet II will know of the horrific effects plastic in the ocean is doing to the environment.

Liz Bonnin looks closer at the impact this pollution is having on wildlife, including uncovering a seabird chick in the Tasman Sea that has swallowed 260 different pieces of plastic. Bonnin also investigates what we are currently doing to clean up the mess.

Drowning in Plastic is on BBC One at 20.30.
