One of the shots found on the camera.
A Samsung camera has been found 30ft underwater off the coast of Cornwall – complete with over 800 family snaps on the memory card.

The camera was found by scuba diver Mark Milburn off the coast of Falmouth. Mark took it home to dry out and then discovered the 800 snaps on the card.

The pictures include a trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Florida, and photos of the same family on a boat trip on the Helford river, Cornwall. There are also pictures of Darth Vader at a theme park, dolphins, and a steam train.

It is thought that they dropped the camera overboard and it was washed out to sea.

Mark runs Atlantic Scuba Diving centre in Falmouth. He is keen to find the family so that they can have their memories back.

Oh! How I wish I did know - it must have been an awful feeling when they realised they'd lost their precious holiday photos.

I always take a picture of my name and phone number - that way if my camera does get lost I should be able to get it back!
