Hundreds expected to help rid Westcountry beaches of litter

Hundreds of volunteer litter-pickers will be helping to clean up the region's beaches this weekend. It's an event organised by the Marine Conservation Society. More than 100 countries and regions worldwide are taking part.

The data collected will help keep up pressure on governments to act to reduce the amount of rubbish on beaches.
