­More than 20 people took to Weston's beach on Saturday to clean up litter with two special guests.

Famous litter-picker Wayne Dixon and his dog Koda have been travelling around Britain to clean up the country’s beaches.

The pair joined kite-surfers and volunteers from the Marine Conservation Society at the weekend to collect five full bags of rubbish from the beach.

Wayne and Koda have walked 2,070 miles in the past 18 months on their quest but still have 4,930 miles to go until their target.

Paddle boarder Charlie Head also visited Weston in a bid to clean England’s 76 beaches and raise awareness for mental health.

Kite surfer Ben Peters said: “We are really happy to have two VIPs helping us to clean up Weston. We had 20 people helping which is one of the best turnouts we have had.”
