Volunteers launch beach clean-up in Burnham-On-Sea

Burnham-On-Sea's beach should be looking a lot cleaner this week after this community-spirited group carried out a beach clean on Wednesday (August 11th).

The team of volunteers from The Huntspill Project, who have learning difficulties, filled over a dozen bin bags with rubbish found along the sands between the Low Lighthouse and Esplanade.

Leader Nigel Maddocks told "We collected several sackfuls of rubbish over several hours - the beach should be a lot tidier now."

The event was run as part of the 'The Big Tidy Up', which is run by Keep Britain Tidy, a national environmental charity. It has been dubbed England’s biggest ever litter pick.
