Forkin’ hell – deadly marine litter

Surfers Against Sewage beach clean

By far the scariest find on yesterday’s SAS Big Spring Beach Clean at Shoreham, Sussex was this garden fork that had been honed by the pebbles into a potentially lethal impaling device.

Forking Hell

Even more worringly, it was found right at one of the area’s most popular surfspots – the Hot Pipe. Altogether, 222kg of marine litter was collected by about 40 volunteers from the local area and as far as London and the University of Surrey. A stretch of beach about a mile long was tackled – from the mouth of the River Adur to the Brighton/Hove boundary.
