An army of volunteers braved bitterly cold weather to give St Annes North Beach a clean.

It was all part of the Love My Beach campaign which is operating along the Fylde coast regularly to keep the coastline clear of waste.

Volunteer Michael Pearson was keen to get out and do his bit. He said: “There was a good turn-out on Thursday and an even bigger number of volunteers for the Tuesday event at St Annes Pier.

“We collected seven or eight bags of rubbish. The high tides and winds brought more debris to shoreline. We have seen some unusual wildlife washed up in the past including Portuguese man o’war jellyfish deposited on the beach after southerly winds.”

There are beach cleans every Thursday at 10am at St Annes North Beach car park and at St Annes Pier, Tuesday 10am-noon. Visit http://lovemybeach.org/
