Armed with protective clothing, litter pickers, and rubbish bags 60 children from Shaldon and Gatehouse Primary Schools, Dawlish, attacked the Dawlish beach at Coryton Cove, and Boat Cove, clearing them of bags of rubbish.
This was the first stage of a project by the Teign Estuary Partnership which will teach the schools and the wider community about the value of a clean beach and the impact of litter in the marine environment on both wildlife and human users.
Some of the rubbish collected has been sorted and will form part of the set of a short film on marine debris being made by the Partnership.
