These two comments from Twitter illustrate that something more has to be done to resolve the problem of visitors litter.
It's a seasonal issue that will always happen when the weather draws the crowds onto the beach. Surely it can be predicted most times and more importantly appropriate action planned.
@NTFormby Rangers and volunteers picked over 30 bin bags full of rubbish off the beach today - very very sad :(— Formby (@NTFormby) July 24, 2014
A plea to all @NTFormby visitors - help us to keep our beautiful site clean and tidy by dumping your rubbish in the bin or taking it home!— Formby (@NTFormby) July 24, 2014
