ITV News Anglia is encouraging everyone to get out this summer and help clean up their parks, beaches and green spaces with a litter pick.

It can be as simple as just picking up a stray crisp packet during a walk in your local woods, or putting a discarded bottle in the bin during a family trip to the coast.

But there are also hundreds of groups organising community litter picks across the Anglia region that you can join in with - and support our summer What a Waste! campaign.

You can find some examples below, and we would love to hear about any you are planning. Email anglianews@itv.com with the time, date, place and contact details so we can add your event too.

Rubbish Walks, organised by Jason Alexander, carries out regular litter picks across Suffolk.
