Boots among items found in Scafell Pike litter pick

A litter pick on England's highest mountain has brought down several bags of items left scattered around the peak by careless visitors.

The clean-up arranged by Stockport-based mountain leader Dave Ascough even found a pair of walking boots on the mountainside, along with various other items including socks, a jacket, glow sticks, walking poles, fruit peel and a contact lens container, Grough reports.

Mr Ainsworth said: "The worst offenders were chewing gum, cigarette butts and plastic bottles, all potentially lethal to wildlife."

People keen to climb to the 3,210 ft summit of England may be glad the mountain is in a better state now than at the end of the summer, as this was the second time this month a group has undertaken a litter-picking expedition there.

The previous effort was made by staff at the Kendal branch of recruitment agency Adecco, after they saw a BBC TV programme highlighting the issue.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801469166-ADNFCR
