Breaking News ! A woman has shared a warning after she claims to have found broken glass 'intentionally' arranged on a Cornish beach. Ari Winfield raised the alarm after becoming concerned by litter problems at Summerleaze Beach in Bude. She said: "Summerleaze Beach in Bude this morning, there are 12 bins, only one recycling bin provided out of the 12. "All of them stuffed with typical convenience items (plastic bottles, cans, glass bottles, disposable bbqs etc) which can all be recycled but will all go into landfill. "Overflowing and rubbish all over the wall and ground around it. "Loads of rubbish on the beach too, with things like broken glass left intentionally in the sand (buried with the sharp pieces pointing up). "I've never known such a rubbish problem all the years I've lived here, definitely caused by the tourists but also exacerbated by the council's lack of recycling and rubbish options. "I'm sure other beaches in Cornwall suffering similarly."

"To be honest the whole beach is a bit of a state, I’ve been finding all sorts of things left on the actual beach itself when we clear up in the morning. "It's Cornwall Council who look after those bins not Bude Stratton Town Council. Apparently they are going to increase the collections but it still doesn't solve the lack of recycling options." Ari said she had written to North Cornwall MP Scott Mann to raise her concerns over the lack of recycling options at the beach. Cornwall Council and Scott Mann have been contacted for a comment. The incident comes in the same week as Cornwall Live launched its Don't Trash Our Future anti-litter campaign. Our aim is to increase the maximum punishment for littering to a £1,000 fine or 100 hours of supervised community litter picking and to make it compulsory for local authorities to enforce the law on littering We are urging you to sign our petition - with the aim of reaching 100,000 signatures so we can lobby the Government to change the legislation and shed the country of its long-held reputation as a litter-plagued nation.
