A volunteer group is due to meet on Sunday to clean up near the important nesting grounds at Smeale beach.

Organiser, Bill Dale asked volunteers to be especially careful clearing rubbish from above the high water mark.

He added: "A variety of seabirds are in the process of creating nests for the spring, despite the cold weather."
