Monmouth Beach rubbish increasing as summer approaches

YESTERDAY my wife did a litter pick on Monmouth Beach in Lyme Regis.

The result was a large bag of discarded drink cans, glass bottles, canisters and other rubbish, including bags of dog poo.

Most were in the usual places at the far end of the beach, although cans were often found around blackened stones where there had been barbecues.

There was also the smouldering remains of a tree trunk just a few feet from the dry grass of the nature reserve; not enough smoke to attract fire services.

We regularly walk along Monmouth Beach and, until recently, the amount of rubbish had been diminishing.

Now, as summer approaches it is getting worse.
