Divers swam with the five blue sharks five miles off Land's End.shark 1

It was after a series of reports from fishing crews.

Charles Hood from St Hilary was on the boat as fellow divers came face to face with the creatures.

He said: "They're big puppy dogs of the sea. They're extremely graceful, just inquisitive, wanting to know where the scent's coming from. They'll come right up to you, literally right up to the camera. The sharks were curious but they weren't intimidating.
