Collecting sack loads of beach litter was bags of fun for a group of 18 youngsters from Boynton primary school.

They were among youngsters from other schools to take part in the Marks and Spencer big beach clean up in Scarborough’s South Bay.

The year three and four children had been studying the effect of beach litter on marine life and as well as collecting several bags of rubbish enjoyed a metal detector treasure hunt.

The visit was organised by the National Schools Partnership.
