It was a day when many people headed for the beach just to enjoy the surprisingly hot September sunshine, but in Sidmouth, some spent an hour picking up rubbish.

A band of volunteers spent an hour cleaning up the main town beach on Saturday, September 14.

The event was organised in response to an appeal by the recipe box company Mindful Chef, one of whose founders, Giles Humphries, is from Sidmouth.

The company asked their customers around the country to hold beach clean sessions, and more than 100 took place, from Scotland down to Cornwall.

The Sidmouth beach clean was hosted by Mindful Chef ambassador Janey Holliday Coaching, with Mr Humphries and co-founder Myles Hopper in attendance.
