Volunteers are needed for a clean-up of a Norfolk river.

Sea Life Great Yarmouth and the Broads Authority are seeking help for the clear-out of Breydon Water, the UK’s largest protected wetland, on Friday (March 15).

Every item of debris will be logged before being bagged for disposal.

The clean-up could take up to three hours.

Previously the team removed over 98kg of rubbish including three shopping-trolleys, tyres and an old PC.

Volunteers are welcome to stay for as long or as little as they can.

Sturdy footwear and warm clothing is advised, while under-16s must be accompanied by an adult.
