'Prawn to be wild'<br />

An army of 1000 tiny lobsters have been released onto a purpose built reef built on the sea bed off Portland in Dorset.<br />
<br />
2000 tonnes of Portland stone have been sunk on the seabed of Ringstead bay in an effort to regenerate the marine life and create a venue for divers.<br />
<br />
The tiny crustaceans were bred at the National Lobster Hatchery in Padstow before being taken to Dorset and released by a team of divers.
