Summer – beaches – litter and wild toileting – immediate and long-term action needed
A petition has been lodged in Parliament calling on the government to enact a public campaign urging domestic tourists to be responsible countryside citizens. It’s led by the Lulworth Estate in Dorset which includes the Durdle Door beach . The petition comes after a sharp rise in the number of people doing their business alfresco known as ‘wild toileting’. Also, dumping litter on the beaches and surrounding areas.
After lockdown lifted in summer 2020 a big clean-up was needed in the area. The Estate came across bad smelling and urine-drenched bushes. Also, huge amount of rubbish left behind.
Owner, James Weld told ynuk.tv about the problem.
