During the afternoon clean up an old tyre and a coil of rope was found on the beach.

Geraint Davies, MP, said: “Plastic eventually becomes microplastic then gets into fish and we eat it but don’t yet know the harm it does us.

“Meanwhile, old fishing tackle and ropes strangle and kill wildlife.

“I presented the plastic Bill in Parliament which requires a deceasing annual total for plastic production and consumption and introduces a tax on virgin plastic to encourage using more sustainable materials.

“There will be more plastic than fish in our oceans by 2050 and plastic waste kills a million birds and 100,000 mammals  each year.

“ Congratulations to all those who joined in today’s half term beach clean. We all have our part to play in protecting our beautiful Swansea environment. You can also help by supporting the crowd funder
