Good news that booming Brighton & Hove is bolstering its beach bins with fifty extra 240-litre bins. These are being delivered in time for the coming weekend.
The hottest weather in decades has seen the beaches packed recently and heavily strewn with litter, much of it left during the night. The council has been clearing up to 50 tonnes of litter from the beach on the busiest weekends.
Extra litter-picking staff are also being deployed to be added to the usual 15 dedicated to the seafront. A further four are on standby from an agency.
