A number of beach and river cleans have been taking place across the region this weekend.

From Aldeburgh to Felixstowe and down the Essex coast to Clacton groups of beach cleaners have been out in force clearing our region’s shores this weekend.

Huge crowds gathered in Southwold to clean and survey The Denes.

Wildlife Gadget Man Jason Alexander was out in Bawdsey early this morning surveying the amount of litter there.

While in Trimley Marshes litter pickers young and old were out helping to clear waste.
