Rubbish dumped close to Bristol Airport was collected during a clean-up.

Staff took a couple of hours out of their day on April 12 to tidy roads and public areas close to the terminal.

In total, 30 bags of waste were collected.

Items left discarded included old wellington boots, towels, and even some tyres were left strewn in grass verges.

Dave Lees, the airport's chief executive, said: “It was a great effort by everyone who joined in with the litter pick, the team spirit was fantastic.

“It was my first litter pick since joining Bristol Airport and it was incredible to see the amount of waste collected in such a short space of time.

“Knowing we were helping to remove litter was a very worthwhile activity and an invaluable way of spending two hours in the local community.”

Further litter-picks are planned for later in the year.
