The shocking extent of Cornwall's beach pollution sparks an urgent appeal.

Pirate FM revealed in just one weekend last year, almost nine thousand pieces of litter were picked up across a mile of our coast.

The Marine Conservation Society says it was everything from cigarette butts to sweet wrappers.

Its volunteers checked twelve beaches in September 2012 as part of its annual Beachwatch campaign.

Andy Cummings from St Agnes group Surfers Against Sewage.

He said: "Not only do they support a lot of income, it generates a lot of money for the south west. It's so important for residents of the south west as well. We all love our beaches. Let's try and make sure we can enjoy them in as clean a state as possible.

"Even when it's raining, we have a vast amount of people using the sea. So we need to make sure that we've got a resource we can be proud of, a resource we can promote. We need clean and safe beaches."
