AN EMPTY bullet case and a green Monopoly house were among the debris found on a Bognor Regis beach clean.

Further rubbish picked up by the 15 volunteers who joined Kimberly Stewart included ‘very rusty’ barbed wire and lumps of rusted metal.

Empty beer cans and sections of fishing net were among the everyday items.

The two-hour event saw seven big bags of litter being cleared from the foreshore around the pier. Sebastian Cunningham, seven, won a Surfers Against Sewage cap for the most obscure object – a mystery lump of metal – and his enthusiasm.

Bognor resident Kimberly said: “He spent at least two hours on the beach. It was really impressive.” She was inspired to hold the event by her experience in biological sciences and wildlife photography.

She took part in a recent SAS beach clean in East Wittering and wanted to repeat its success with help from Arun District Council.
