Shocking Pictures Show Piles Of Rubbish Left Behind After Bank Holiday Weekend

Shocking Pictures Show Piles Of Rubbish Left Behind After Bank Holiday Weekend

Brits were treated to one of the rarest of all events this weekend - a bank holiday with beautiful weather. Temperatures tipped 27C in parts of the UK yesterday, making it perfect for a trip to the beach, park or countryside.

Sadly, many people have taken the piss and treated a number of UK beauty spots like a bin across the weekend.

Photos showing beaches, parks and other popular sites absolutely covered in litter have been shared online and it's pretty grim. Piles of trash, including empty beer cans and bottles, disposable barbeques, food packaging and takeaway containers were left behind as hordes of people made the most of the gorgeous weather.

Comedian Joe Lycett also shared a snap of a rubbish-filled Birmingham's Cannon Hill Park, urging visitors to pick up after themselves:

City Beach in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, was also left looking a tip after thousands of people descended on the beach across the long weekend.

Local resident Sam Taylor, took photos of the piles of litter, saying she was 'shocked and appalled' by what she saw.

She said: "I had seen the number of people down there on the news but I wasn't prepared for how much of a mess it would be.

"People just expect others to clear up after them. I was shocked and appalled.

"I've seen it similar to that previously but not that bad. In this day and age, it doesn't take a lot to take your own rubbish to the bin.

"I'm quite concerned about the marine life," Sam added. "The Southend street team were out in force cleaning up. I hope they managed to clear it up before the tide came in."

Keep Britain Tidy chief executive Allison Ogden-Newton told the Mirror: "On a gorgeous bank holiday thousands of us flock to our beaches and parks because they are beautiful, clean and great places to enjoy the sunshine with our families.

"But some people seem to think it is acceptable to walk away at the end of the day, leaving their rubbish behind and destroying the very beauty they went there to enjoy.

"It is not, neither can we use the excuse that 'the bins were full'. If the bins are full, then you should take your rubbish home with you. You took it there, you take it away again.

"Those thoughtless people who leave their litter are damaging our environment for everyone."
