Britain's beaches are nearly twice as dirty as they were a year ago, according to the Marine Conservation Society.

A report on the society's Beach Watch 95 clean-up and survey of beach litter says councils lacked sufficient resources to clear rubbish left by tourists - but blames the problem on litter bugs rather than local authority inaction.

The National Trust's Jack Scout Cove in Silverdale, Lancashire, was the dirtiest of 196 beaches surveyed.
