A lorry-load of litter dropped in one month at a Somerset skate park has been returned there in a bid to stop youngsters leaving rubbish.

A total of 38 full black sacks of litter were displayed at Oak Tree Park in Yeovil under the banner Don't Be a Dirty Chucker.

Chris Rowland, of South Somerset District Council, said: "We wanted to show people what would happen if it wasn't cleared up."

The rubbish was all collected in June.

Mr Rowland, the council's environmental enforcement officer, said: "We hope this will encourage park users to use the bins rather than rely on others."
