Call for Southsea beach clean up
Category: After Party Cleaning
Following environmental concerns that were raised during and after previous heatwaves, authorities are keen to ensure people start cleaning up any mess they leave on the seaside.
Councillor Alistair Thompson told the News: "Broken glass and litter is a hazard for everyone - but especially young children who could seriously hurt themselves just by running across the pebbles or paddling in the water.
"It is absolutely disgusting. People who drop litter should be fined again and again until they stop."
Portsmouth's beaches are popular among revellers and families during the summer, with events such as the Southsea Rowing Regatta drawing in substantial crowds.
The city council underlined its commitment to keeping the beaches clean by highlighting the fact that it has commercial cleaners and litter pickers out on the beaches for most of the day cleaning up waste.
