Litter picking

PEOPLE are urged to join in a beach litter pick this weekend.

If you can spare a couple of hours on Sunday morning, then why not head down to Seaton Carew and lend a hand.

The Big Beach Blitz is being organised by Hartlepool Countryside Team as part of International Coastal Clean Up Day.

All litter picking equipment will be provided and prizes will be handed out for the most unusual items or litter found.

It takes place from 10am to 12.30pm.

People should meet at Seaton coach park.
