The Bamburgh and District Amateur Surf Society (BADASS) took part in the Surfers Against Sewage autumn beach clean last Saturday and collected 15 bin bags full of rubbish.

Kezz Stone, who organised the event, left, said: “A big thank-you to all the volunteers who gave up their time to help in the Surfers Against Sewage autumn beach clean. We even had two ladies drive up from the Midlands which is an amazing effort.

“This is about half of the rubbish we found around the dunes which included plastic bottles, cigarette buts, beer cans and dog mess in plastic bags. We even found an addressed envelope in one pile of rubbish so will be having a word with the perpetrator!”

Local councillor Guy Renner-Thompson, right, took part and said: “This council takes a hard-line approach to keeping our green spaces green and anyone caught littering will be issued an on-the-spot fine of £80 or taken to court.”
