Help needed for Mundesley beach clean

Volunteers are needed to help with a beach clean at Mundesley on Sunday September 18 from 2pm to 4pm.

It is part of Beachwatch, the Marine Conservation Society's beach clean and litter survey which aims to highlight the issues of beach litter around the UK's coastline.

Local Beachwatch organiser, Gill Hoyes, from Mundesley, said she would like to see more volunteers than ever before lend a hand to make it the biggest clean up yet at the village.

MCS surveys have recorded a steady increase in the amount of beach litter since 1994. The four main sources of litter found on UK beaches come from the public, fishing, sanitary waste - particularly cotton bud sticks - and shipping.

The mess not only makes beaches unsightly but can injure and kill animals.
