More than 25 bags of litter were collected from around Worle on Sunday morning.

Mary Spinks has organised litter-picks around the area for more than 12 months after becoming frustrated at the amount of litter in Worle, Mead Vale and Locking Castle.

The picks are part of North Somerset Council's adopt a street volunteers, who help keep their communities and environments free from litter.

Volunteers choose the street they would like to adopt and are provided with the litter picking equipment and safety information needed.
