More than 30 people took part in the clean-up held next to the pier on May 9.

It was organised by the pier alongside the Marine Conservation Society, and it was the first in a series of cleans organised by the pier.

The results will go to the conservation society’s national survey which aims to improve understanding of marine environments.

Future clean-ups will take place on July 31, September 18 and December 11.
