An old tug has been sunk off the coast of Samoa, with the aim of attracting more tourists and creating jobs.

The dive company, Aqua Samoa, hopes the sunken boat which is 33 metres long, will become a haven for fish and attract more divers, opening the way for some young Samoans to take on careers in the dive industry.
