A group that meets regularly to "embrace everything we love about Lowestoft" joined forces to carry out a special litter pick and beach clean.

More than 20 members of the Lowestoft-based ‘Sea for the Soul’ group collected rubbish from the sands between Corton and Pakefield.

The group carried out a ‘Surfers Against Sewage’ beach clean along "our beautiful beaches".

A spokesman said: "It's a free support group of individuals who get together every week all year round to take a dip in the sea and embrace everything we love about Lowestoft.
