During the summer months especially on a Sunday morning, I seem to pick leftover party goers up from the so called all night beach parties that take place mainly in the Earnsie Bay area. This is a beautiful area with long stretches of often empty beaches and a huge nature reserve with many rare species within the sand hills including ,so they tell me up to 25% of the country's rare Natterjack toad population. On my day off I had a walk down there and yes the beach was deserted and pristine as usual, but walking back through the sand hills you can't help but see what a mess these weekend party animals are leaving (animals being the operative word). Broken glass and empty cans, and much worse, some of it being a health hazard, and lots of remains from fires dotted among the sand hills. With this being such an important local amenity why do we let this happen? surely local police, coastguards and wardens should be keeping an eye out for this lot at the weekend and if not why not?
