Youngsters at Southborough Primary School, in Southborough Lane, Bromley, enjoyed a visit by the Cool Seas Roadshow last Thursday after year-three pupil Brooke Walsh won a national competition to build a sea monster out of rubbish, to highlight the problem of seaside pollution.

Andy Starbuck and his team from the Marine Conservation Society brought with them life-size models of a basking shark, leatherback turtle and dolphins.

The visit was made possible thanks to the Conservation Society’s sponsor, Sea France ferries, which has spearheaded the national beach clean campaign.
