Volunteers are set to clear up the coast this weekend as part of the Great British Beach Clean.
What is the Great British Beach Clean?
The coastal clean-up will form part of a nationwide event, organised annually by the Marine Conservation Society.
The cleans have been taking place for over 25 years and during this time, more than 300 tonnes of litter has been picked up from Britain's beaches.
In Suffolk the event is co-ordinated by the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Are of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
