Plea for rubbish removal.

AS THE summer sunshine looks set to continue, a wildlife group is urging people to take their litter home with them.

Northumberland Wildlife Trust is reminding people to think of the environment when they are out and about enjoying the good weather, especially when visiting the coast.

Duncan Hutt, head of land management, said: "I have seen people throw rubbish into the sea rather than put it in a rubbish bin 5ft away - which infuriates me.

Rubbish thrown into the sea has to go somewhere and people don't give any thought to where it goes or the damage it causes." He added: "I would urge members of the public to spare a thought for what's living under the sea when they are hurling their rubbish into it."
