Designs for a £40 million ($52 million) new eco-yacht that will collect plastic from the ocean and recycle it as it sails have been unveiled in Southampton.

The 'Ocean Saviour' is designed to scoop up a staggering five tonnes of plastic pollution each day and will become the first vessel ever to power itself by recycling ocean waste into fuel.

Plastic will be chopped finely, milled and processed through onboard machinery which will destroy it completely with minimal atmospheric pollution.
