Mike Weatherley has called on visitors to Brighton & Hove beaches to take their rubbish back with them when they leave for the day.
After a weekend of perfect beach weather, residents have complained to Mike about the huge amount of rubbish that was left on the city’s beaches. Sadly, thousands of beachgoers simply head home after a fun day by the sea without picking up after themselves. One resident reported that the state of the beaches in the early hours of Sunday morning was more akin to small landfill sites than award-winning beaches.
Commenting, Mike said: “It’s certainly not too much to ask that people take any rubbish that they create when visiting our wonderful beaches. Unfortunately, I am sure that people who live in Brighton & Hove are just as guilty as those who visit from outside the City, but if everyone just took care of the rubbish that they created then it would really help and save a lot of taxpayers’ money having to be spent on clearing it all up.”
