A UK Satellite has performed the first test of a net designed to capture space debris, and the footage was captured in orbit.

In this video, you can see the Net experiment successfully capturing a deployed cubesat.

The Remove Debris mission comprises of a main satellite platform (~100kg) that once in orbit will deploy two CubeSats as artificial debris targets to demonstrate some of the technologies (net capture, harpoon capture, vision-based navigation, dragsail de-orbitation). The project is co-funded by the European Commission and the project partners, and is led by the Surrey Space Centre (SSC), University of Surrey, UK.
