Volunteers take part in Clevedon beach clean

Dozens of beach cleaners were on Clevedon seafront at the weekend to clear up litter.
Environmental charity Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) hosted a well-attended Big Spring Beach Clean on Saturday.
A SAS spokesman said: “Approximately 30 beach cleaners turned out and removed 20kg of plastics and other rubbish in the space of just one hour.”
The Times is running its own Cleaner Coastlines campaign to achieve plastic-free coastline status for North Somerset from SAS.
Run in partnership with our sister paper the Weston Mercury and North Somerset Council, the campaign urges people to cut down on single-use plastics such as straws, takeaway boxes and bottles which often end up littering the country’s beaches and oceans.
