Volunteers braved the December cold and heavy rain to take to the beach for a Christmas time clean up.
Thirty five people from as far as Germany spent their Sunday collecting litter on the beach at Wells and Holkham on the north Norfolk coast in a clean up organised by Holkham Hall warden Jonathan Holt.
Volunteers helped gather 25 full bags of litter, including two camping chairs and a fishing buoy, with most of what was collected including bits of fishing net, plastic straws and wet wipes.
Mr Holt said: 'It's a very beautiful area. People want to spend time making a difference.
'You often get more litter on the beach during winter because of bad weather and storms. It's very rewarding making a difference to the environment.
