Bournemouth, Dorset, England this afternoon


Via MailOnline:

A major incident was declared in Bournemouth today after thousands of people flocked to Britain’s beaches leaving the emergency services ‘stretched to the absolute hilt’ on the second consecutive hottest day of the year.

Council bosses said they were ‘appalled‘ at the scenes on the Dorset coast, blasting the ‘irresponsible behaviour and actions of so many people’ as temperatures soared towards 93F (34C) in southern England and Wales today

From our beach clean in Redbarn on Saturday. So let’s try and see if we are dating this bottle correctly. Would it be late 1960s maybe? Seeing as the currency changed in Ireland in 1971?



Clean Coasts Ballynamona adds:

This KP packet of Alien Invaders has a best before date of 11th Jan 1986. This was 31 years old when it was cleaned up in a beach clean…

This plastic bottle all the way from France was found on Ballynamona Beach. The price on it is the Nouveau Franc, used in France between 1960-62, making this plastic rubbish approx 55 years old.
