Blackness beach receives a thorough clean

Sea Champions Jackie Leeds, from Blackness, and Lesley Anderson, from Linlithgow cleared over 40 bags of litter as part of their Beachwatch beach clean and litter survey on Blackness Beach.

Lesley regularly sees the impacts of marine pollution, and as an avid diver, she see's the unnecessary damage being caused by litter to Scotland’s environment beneath the waves.

As a result, they've signed up as Sea Champions and organise Beachwatch beach cleans to help combat marine litter.

“The tide of litter washing up on our shores is not just unpleasant to look at, it can harm and even kill some of our best-loved marine wildlife" says Jackie.
