Letter: Beach litter - better strategy is needed

A better strategy is needed to clean up beach litter after big events.
A better strategy is needed to clean up beach litter after big events.

Last Sunday, after an organised beach football event down at Pits Wall End on the Saturday, which brought in around 750-1,000 beach goers to this area of the beach - of which Bridlington Council must have been aware of such a sizeable event – why didn’t the council make adequate provision to prevent the litter disaster?

Not only this, our local bird population are ingesting plastic and further spreading the litter.

Bridlington has been let down by poor council management despite visiting tourists’ best intentions to contain their rubbish.

Will this be repeated next week?
