Channel Island environmentalists say new UK proposals to cut down on the amount of plastic people use, do not go far enough.

The Prime Minister announced today that she wants to eradicate all avoidable plastic waste within 25 years.

Both Jersey and Guernsey's governments say they support the moves and are working hard to clean the beaches of plastic.

However, environmentalists say the amount of plastic we use needs to be reduced and are calling for more action.

This weekend, conservation volunteers have organised beach cleans in Alderney, Jersey, Guernsey and Sark for 'The Big Channel Islands Beach Clean'.
