EA staff help clean up beach
Environment Agency and Northumberland Wildlife Trust staff picked litter at Druridge Bay, one of the county’s most popular beaches, on 10 September.
Northumberland County Council staff also helped by removing the rubbish collected.
Environmental monitoring officer Laura Corrigan, who organised the event, said: “Hopefully it will encourage beach users to take note and make sure they dispose of their litter responsibly, or better still, reduce, reuse or recycle where possible.”
