A shopping trolley was among the rubbish hauled out of the River Ingrebourne by volunteers.

Cllrs Barry Mugglestone and Stephanie Nunn joined the Friends of Ingrebourne Valley & Hornchurch Country Park for a clean-up of the river and surrounding areas.

Stephen Owen from the Environment Agency also attended.

Cllr Mugglestone said: “We found many areas of the river blocked with large pieces of wood, and as you can see at the end of the clean-up we had a well-earned cup of tea.

“It was hard work but rewarding, even though my back did not agree for a few days.”

The working parties are held regularly. For more details check the Friends website www.ingrebournevalleyfriends.org.
