Rare Seabirds Breeding Next To Hazardous Waste

CHESIL

12:22pm 2nd June 2014

There's concern for a colony of rare seabirds that are nesting on Chesil Beach close to hazardous waste.

Wildlife Volunteer Tim Limbach is helping to keep watch over the Little Terns there.

It's the only place they breed in the South West.

But Tim says the beach is still plagued with cigarette packets that washed ashore during the storms.

"We tried to collect them up, but the bags are so heavy it's difficult to get them back to the Chesil Beach Visitor Centre."

"There are packets of cigarettes that have washed up and are just sodden along with plastic and wire.  The smell is really quite bad and something needs to be done."
