Beach clean-up: a clarification

A media report yesterday incorrectly stated volunteers collected 10 tonnes of rubbish from Brighton beach on May 27 2014.  The actual figure was estimated at around 200kg.  Chair of the council’s environment committee Cllr Pete West said:  “While the council applauds the efforts of volunteers on the day, we wanted to make clear the beach was in a good condition following that bank holiday weekend of May 24-26, because of the efforts of our Cityclean staff.”

The picture below shows the condition of the beach at 8.50am on May 27, before volunteers set to work.
