I REGULARLY cycle along the beach most mornings and it is perfectly normal to see people sleeping on the beach in tents.

This has steadily increased and in some cases up to seven tents in a circle. As the beach tractor rakes the sand for litter clearance, they have to leave these islands and then we have to pick litter by hand, which is more expensive. All at extra expense.

Why are these tents allowed? Why are the occupants not moved on before the clearance begins? How are the users not fined for litter? These people add nothing to the local economy.

The lack of enforcement has surely created the crisis we are now seeing. Maybe our No Excuse road enforcement teams could be re-dispatched to control the beaches and the inconsiderate parking violations.
