A SCUBA diver from Keighley met the Prince of Wales at a special event to mark the handover of the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC) presidency.

Mick Barraclough, 65, chairman and diving officer of the Bradford branch of BSAC, was at the London reception which was also attended by the Duke of Cambridge.

It was announced in May that the Duke has followed in the footsteps of his father to take the helm of BSAC, the UK’s governing body for snorkelling and scuba diving.

Mr Barraclough, who has been diving for 26 years, said at the event: “It was fantastic, a real honour, and I have felt really privileged to be asked to represent the Bradford club which is going from strength to strength.

“The Prince of Wales was extremely pleasant and told me that he was very impressed with the commitment we had shown to our club and the time we give up as volunteers."
