Rubbish Left At Beauty Spot

As the weather heats up again - people visiting a famous Dorset beauty spot are being asked to stop dumping so much rubbish there.

The Lulworth Estate's told us it collected more than half a tonne of beach litter at Durdle Door in just two weekends.

It included 50 burnt-out BBQs, bags of rotting picnic food and dirty nappies.

James Weld from the Lulworth Estate explained:

"The vast majority of visitors to our beaches enjoy their visit and then take their litter home but a small minority of people are ruining it for everyone else.

"Littering is not only anti-social, unsightly and unhygienic, it causes needless suffering to marine and wildlife. Our Rangers and litter-pickers are working beyond the call of duty to keep on top of it. We are appealing to all visitors to play their part in keeping this iconic piece of Britain tidy.

"Durdle Door has a litter enclosure on the approach to the beach. Visitors are asked to bag their rubbish and place it in this bin or, preferably, take it home".
