Making a splash at Malaysia's mermaid school

An academy in Malaysia's coastal town of Klang is teaching its students how to swim like mermaids.

The students even dress for the part, donning bikini tops and plastic mermaid fins covered in a colourful and glittery fabric.

Specialist mermaid tricks taught by the academy include somersaults and the swimmers' ability to keep their eyes open while navigating underwater.
