Villagers patrolled Shorne at the weekend in a bid to clean up the Gravesham countryside.

A total of 33 volunteers donned their high-vis waistcoats and armed themselves with litter pickers to join in the Great British Spring Clean weekend.

Not stopping at general letter, some of the villagers tackled some of the flytipped rubbish left around the more remote parts of the village, found east of Gravesend.

Parish councillor Bob Lane said: “This is the fifth of our six-monthly litter patrols, and the great work carried out by Shorne residents shows a clear demonstration of the pride we have in our area, and our firm determination to prevent our village from being destroyed or polluted by the uncaring, thoughtless actions of others who have no regard for the environment.”
