Litter pests leave their mark at Rhossili Bay
THE undoubted pull of Rhossili Bay combined with glorious sunshine has again revealed a grubby downside.
Not for the first time, litter pests have failed to take their rubbish home from the Gower beauty spot.
Steve Williams, who took his two nephews there on Monday, said he came across four piles of rubbish on the beach.
He also claimed the public toilets ponged and that soiled nappies were dumped on and around litter bins outside.
The beach is managed by the National Trust, which has again urged visitors to act responsibility and take their rubbish away.
Swansea Council said its staff cleaned the toilets at Rhossili Bay on Monday.
Mr Williams said: “Further down the beach there was a rather grim sighting of a rotting sheep carcass which was swarming with flies and maggots - a lovely sight on a hot summer’s day."
A National Trust spokesman said: “We are doing a lot of things to keep the litter managed, particularly through educating people to be responsible to take their litter with them.
“We rely on regular beach cleans with volunteers."
A council spokesman said: “Our staff cleaned the toilets at Rhossili Bay twice on bank holiday Monday and also collected rubbish from bins located there."
