Cigarettes, pet food and packets of feta cheese are just some of the spilt cargo that's being washed up on Dorset beaches.

Warnings have been issued not to eat any of the food products.

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency have now reported that a 4th container has been spotted off Start Point In Devon.
It's not known what its carrying.

So far 10 tonnes of litter has been collected and disposed of by the Dorset Waste Partnership, most of it was at Chesil Beach.

On Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th March they'll be a public beach clean at Osmington and Ringstead.

On Sunday 22 March they'll also be a post storm clear up at the Fleet Lagoon.
