Pupils from Dundee have given a helping hand to a local initiative to keep beaches clean after the summer is over.
The Big Beach Clean got under way at Broughty Ferry Beach and volunteers came out to help, despite the damp and cold weather.
Pupils from Grove Academy were not put off by the rain and got cosied up in jumpers and waterproofs to help collect litter from the sand.
Pam Maclean, a biology teacher at the school, said: “We had 17 pupils and five staff members who took part.
“Pupils volunteered to come along and help with the Big Beach Clean as they felt that they had used the beach a lot this summer and wanted to help clean it up so that the community can continue to enjoy it.
“Staff in the biology department have been using clips from the BBC documentary Drowning in Plastic as a teaching resource and have raised awareness of this issue with our young people.
“Pupils were therefore keen to do their bit to help, found it enjoyable and wish to continue their good work in the near future.
“S3, S5 and S6 pupils from the school took part in the Big Beach Clean.
“Staff and pupils had a great afternoon helping to clear the beach – once the rain went off.”
The clean-up was part of Keep Britain Tidy.
