Discarded fishing hooks are posing a risk to people on Gorleston beach, the borough council has warned.
Environmental rangers have received a number of complaints from members of the public, and are urging people who fish from Gorleston beach to clear up after themselves when they leave.
Over recent weeks the council has cleared litter that has been left on the sand, as well as discarded fishing hooks and line and tackle – which can be hazardous to other beach users.
The council is also aware that some local residents have also cleared up material from the beach.
Environmental rangers will be heading to the beach over the coming weeks to urge those fishing to clear up after themselves and dispose of their litter responsibly.
