In total 29 volunteers collected 4014 items of litter from the 300 metre stretch between South Parade Pier and the Pyramids. The amount of litter found was the most of any of the six years for which records are available; it is also a record per head. The beach did seem to be dirtier than in previous years.
Full returns are available in the ‘Beachwatch Returns’ section of this website. Interesting items found include 6 shotgun cartridges, a knife, a cannabis grinder and a Blackberry phone.
