Spring clean for Burnham-On-Sea and Berrow beaches

A team of nine council staff has this week completed a three-day clean-up operation on Burnham-On-Sea's beach.

Five truckfuls of rubbish and over 150 sacks have been taken away in readiness for the busy Easter holiday season.

Chris Bees, Sedgemoor's Clean Surroundings Supervisor for the Burnham area, told "The beach should definitely be a lot cleaner. We've removed large quantities of man-made rubbish all along the coast, from Berrow up to Burnham Yacht Club."

"Several truck loads of material has been taken away, plus 150 bags of small items including bottles, sanitary items and plastic rubbish. We haven't picked up natural items, such as seaweed or driftwood."
