More than 100 people from across the area hit the seafront for a big beach clean-up.
The volunteers braved the wind to take part in the mass effort from Eastney to Southsea.
The event was organised by Chantelle Wyatt and her employer, diving and water sports company Triton Scuba. She says: ‘It was a brilliant turnout especially given the weather conditions that were not ideal. It shows that people do care about their environment.’
Volunteers of all ages attended throughout the day to show their support and raise awareness about ocean pollution.
David Jones, owner of Triton Scuba, also works for UK charity Plastic Oceans.
He says: ‘The problem of ocean pollution is growing beyond recognition.’
