VOLUNTEERS are being asked to help clean up one of Dorset's most iconic landmarks next month, with a beach clean being organised at Durdle Door.

Lulworth Rangers had to deal with huge amounts of rubbish left behind by selfish beach-goers as lockdown restrictions lifted in the summer. While the beauty spot hasn't attracted as many visitors in recent months, the team is now calling for volunteers to help them protect the natural wonder.

A spokesperson for the Lulworth Rangers said: "Covid permitting, we will be hosting our annual 'festive beach clean' at Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. End the year with a good deed, get involved with the local community and help protect this unique bit of coastline.

"We will be looking at government guidance leading up to this event for how we can run it safely and effectively."

The event will be held on Tuesday, December 15. Those wishing to take part should email rangers@lulworth.com or phone 01929 400155.

Litter pickers, bags and gloves will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own as well.

Meet at 11.30am outside the Lulworth Cove visitor centre.
