A group of teenagers have been collecting rubbish from the beach to highlight the issues with plastic pollution.
The Weston branch of the National Citizens Service has been taking part in a number of activities throughout the summer holidays.
The service is for teenagers aged 15-17 and gives them the chance to embark on challenges and build new skills.
Weston’s youngsters chose to spend time on the seafront collecting rubbish and carrying out beach cleans.
They then took to the Grand Pier to give out advice on recycling.
This week, they have been working with City To Sea to sign businesses up to the Refill app, which shows which shops and pubs are happy to fill bottles with water for free.
