Revolting pics show piles of rubbish, bottles of urine, used BBQS and booze left on Britain’s beaches

SHOCKING pictures show piles of rubbish, bottles of urine and used BBQs left on Britain's beaches during the sunshine.

People making daytrips after spending weeks at home have been slammed for not cleaning up after themselves and leaving the beauty spots in a much worse state compared to just weeks ago.

Thousands of Brits have flocked to the coast during weeks of sunny weather and lockdown relaxations, and have left plenty of litter.

Just a few weeks ago these spots were mostly people and litter-free as the country remained in stricter lockdown, but relaxing of the rules have seen people swarm beaches.

Families and friends were pictures sitting close together at various UK beauty spots this weekend - making it impossible to keep social distances and keep the areas clean and tidy in many cases.

A foul outcome of these daytrips has been bottles of urine left behind, as public toilets are closed as the coronavirus pandemic continues.

The phenomenon, known as “fly peeing”, is causing beauty spots to turn into public toilets, and the bottles to pile up along roads and beaches.

Small coastal villages with limited facilities, such as Weybourne in Norfolk, have been covered in bottles of urine and nappies.

Lyndon Swift, the parish council chairman, said: “The car park is inundated and we have zero toilet facilities so the beaches and hedgerows are filling with toilet paper.”

Becky Jarrett hit out on social media, saying: “They had to open a load of loos on the Norfolk coast for the bank holiday weekend due to people leaving bottles of wee and heaps of poo and dirty nappies all over the beaches here the week before.

“Disgusting idiots.”

On the other side of the country a care worker from Burnham-on-sea, Somerset, reported people urinating in public against her garden fence.

Others said boozy Brits caught short had even defecated in private gardens.

Crowds on beaches and cliffs at Durdle Door over the weekend showed a "shocking" disregard for the area, a conservation charity said.

Lucy Culkin, chief executive of the The Jurassic Coast Trust, said it had received hundreds of messages from members of the public since the weekend.

She said these highlighted the "appalling volume of litter" on beaches, including human waste, sanitary items, and surgical masks and gloves, as well as disposable barbecues.

"The lack of respect for our coastline shown by some has deeply saddened our local communities and visitors alike," she said.

"It was clear to see that some had all but forgotten the guidelines of social distancing or welfare for themselves and others, or indeed any respect for the natural environment they were visiting."

And calls have been made to ban people from Skegness beach after pictures of litter strewn across the popular attraction were posted online.

Papers, beer cans and disposable barbecues were among the items left behind by visitors across several parts of the resort.

The images were shared online by the RNLI East of England, which appealed with people to take their rubbish home.

The organisation wrote on Facebook: "If you're making the most of this weather at the beach... please take your litter with you!

"There are plenty of bins to choose from."

The revelations sparked outrage, with many calling on the Government to reintroduce the ban on people visiting beaches.
