Never mind the Scallops...they're thriving.<br />
<br />
A diver has captured amazing footage of thousands of dancing scallops in the sea just off Lyme Regis in Dorset.<br />
<br />
The incredible spectacle was captured by marine researcher Emma Sheehan on a dive in Lyme Bay  as part of the RETURN project to monitor the bay's reef. <br />
<br />
A ban on scallop dredging was introduced at Lyme bay in 2008 and has been credited for the astonishing surge in numbers.
