THE funeral for scallop diver Matt Green is set for Bournemouth Crematorium at the end of the month.

Mr Green, who was only married five weeks before his death, last month, was a father-of-two from Mudeford.

A skilled scallop diver, the 33-year-old failed to surface while working off the Purbeck coast.

His disappearance sparked a major operation, which involved many members of the Lulworth fishing community.

The body of Mr Green, who was well known in the fishing community - working off Lulworth Cove and Dartmouth in Devon - was located by divers on the sea floor.

His funeral is set for Friday, August 31, at 3pm.

All friends and fellow fishermen are invited.

Casual dress should be worn, with family saying it would be nice to wear something green.

Afterwards all are invited to Avon Beach, Mudeford.
