A plea goes out to 'Clean Cornwall.'

Duchy campaigners are urging more of us to litter-pick at our beauty spots and beaches.

It comes as the Marine Conservation Society warns that British bays are the dirtiest they have been for 20 years.

Jill Stott from Clean Cornwall is worried visitors are being put-off: "It's hazardous. It can be hazardous by its physical presence but also in its decay and it can cause issue with pollution. And also there's the impact it could have on wildlife as well.

"Cornwall is a really, really popular destination for tourism and I think that one of the economical issues around that is that if we don't have a clean county, it's really hard, I think, for businesses to attract tourism to the area."
