Ministers Brendan Griffin and Damien English will take part in a beach clean-up in The Maharees at 6pm this evening.

The event is being organised to raise awareness around marine litter.

It follows a stark warning last month that the Maharees could be destroyed.

In early July there were numerous reports of littering in the area which included nappies and human excrement.

Organisers of tonight’s clean-up are calling on people to attend and help improve the area.

The group will meet at 6pm in carpark at Beal Geal /Sandy Bay.
