Dear Editor,

 

Lines of hooks and weights left behind are now a daily problem along Aldwick beach.

 

On a recent Sunday, I waded into the sea to rescue a herring gull which was attached to a fishing line and weight with three barbed hooks through its body and feet – plus it had swallowed the line with weights still attached.

 

Fortunately, my plumber son had his van nearby with his tool box handy to snip the bird free.

 

I have picked up the discarded debris every day for ten days. I am not alone in doing this. Ask any dog walker. This has got to stop.

 

Elizabeth Lord,
West Avenue, Aldwick
