Measures have been taken in Kent to prevent the amount of rubbish being left on beaches with barbecues being banned in certain locations to deter litterbugs.
These scenes are reminiscent of what happened last summer when beaches from Brighton to Sunderland were left resembling waste sites as tonnes of rubbish was left behind by those visiting the coast for the day.
Although the UK is still reporting thousands of new Covid cases a day but the scientific guidelines and the successful vaccine rollout have allowed for small sporting activities to reconvene as well as outdoor gatherings of no more than six people.
However, prime minister Boris Johnson has urged everyone to remain cautious and safe.
He is quoted as saying: “I know how much people have missed the camaraderie and competition of organised sport, and how difficult it has been to restrict physical activities - especially for children. But we must remain cautious, with cases rising across Europe and new variants threatening our vaccine rollout. Despite the easements, everyone must continue to stick to the rules, remember hands, face, space, and come forward for a vaccine when called.”
