As temperatures soar, many Brits have been heading to the beach to enjoy the sunshine though it seems many of them have been forgetting to take their rubbish with them.
Tourist hotpots like Brighton Beach have had thousands of sun seekers over the past few days, but long after the crowds have gone home, their rubbish has been left behind – despite pleas from local authorities.
One local resident wrote: “Brighton beach is an absolute state yet again this morning. Walked here as I do every morning to go for a swim and don’t even wanna get in the sea.”
“It’s very sad. Apart from being lazy and gross it’s detrimental to our environment and wildlife.”
