Here are some shots from the clean-up:

beach clean-up before shot No shortage of lap sap as we began! Indeed, the tideline was far from the worst area; most rubbish was at the top of the beach, and strewn among vegetation just above the sand.

Loads of bags filled, mostly with polystyrene; govt Food n Hygiene Dept later sent a boat to collect the bags.

Even so, plenty of rubbish remained on the beach; more would arrive, esp with easterles.

More clean-ups likely; but also need less lap sap in the sea – inc less dumping of polystyrene boxes used by fishermen and others.

Here’s some video I took:
