Hopes for thousand-strong beach clean

Record-breaking attempt at various locations

Beach Buddies is aiming to make Sunday's meeting its biggest one ever.

A mass cleanup of beaches is taking place at various locations across the Island between 10.30am and midday.

Dozens of public sector workers and politicians have pledged their support - now organisers are calling on the public to make it a record-breaking turnout.

As ever, all equipment will be provided free of charge.

A private event is also being held at Sartfield, Jurby.
