Divers sat down to coffee in an aquarium tank, encircled by large sharks.

This unusual break was in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support’s “World’s Biggest Coffee Morning” event.

In all, Macmillan is hoping to raise more than 8 million pounds for charity.

Divers descended into a tank at the Deep Sea World aquarium in Fife, Scotland.

As well as containing 4.5 million litres of water, the Underwater Safari tank contained Sand Tiger sharks, giant stingrays and more.

Donations raised by the stunt will help provide services for cancer sufferers and their families.
