Purbeck Police says that the discarded rubbish left by overnight campers in Studland is “appalling and simply not acceptable”.
On its social media account, Purbeck Police posted pictures of the scene that greeted them and the National Trust team, following reports of people camping overnight in the area.
Rubbish discarded included tents, chairs and a toothbrush
This will be followed up
Purbeck Police said:
“Unfortunately for the people who decided to leave with the fire still warm and their rubbish sprawled all over the area, you also left personal details for me to find. You will hear from the police in due course and this will be followed up.”
The items left at the beauty spot, which is a designated National Nature Reserve, included clothes, cheap tents, plastic chairs, drink cans and a toothbrush.
The police also reported that it was intending to move on 30 overnight campers from South Beach in Studland.
