Volunteers who participated in the beach cleanups in Torre del Mar and Rincón de la Victoria last Sunday collected over 400 kilos of waste in total.

Around 275 kilos were picked up in Torre del Mar, while just over 150 kilos were registered in Rincón de la Victoria.

The most common items collected included plastics, cans, bottles, clothes and shoes, tyres, wet wipes bags and cigarette butts.

The day formed part of a national beach cleanup event organised by the network of beach guardians.
