Archant

A length of heavy rope and a child’s motorbike were some of the more interesting items found during a litter pick.

Some 50 volunteers turned out to help clean up the Lower Otter Estuary on Saturday. Among the items found were a range of bottles, cans, tubes, cigarette lighters, footwear and vehicle tyres.

The event is organised by the Otter Valley Association (OVA) in conjunction with landowners Clinton Devon Estates and East Devon District Council (EDDC).

It is also supported by the charity Beachclean, which provided litter-picking sticks for the event.
