A 7,000 mile litter-picking tour of Britain has begun for one man and his dog.

Starting and ending at Knott End Library, 44-year-old Wayne Dixon set off on Monday on his journey around the coast of Scotland and England picking up litter as he goes.

He will also be raising money for mental health charity MIND and the Northern Inuit Dog Rescue Society.

Along with his four-year-old Northern Inuit dog Koda, Wayne will camp under the stars to save money on the trip, which he estimates will take him around two years.

Wayne, from Clitheroe, said: “I’ll be visiting some beautiful places ruined by litter and I want to make things better.”
