Around 40 volunteers have joined a Wightlink-led beach clean as part of Isle of Wight Day this morning (Saturday).

A dozen sacks full of rubbish were collected from the area around Ryde Pier and the beach to the east towards Appley.

Unusual items found included a toy gun, a bowling pin, diving mask, goggles and various items of clothing.

“It was a beautiful morning and it was really nice to have so many Wightlink people, many with families, coming together to do a bit of good for the environment.”
