The Hatfield group saw a record number of 25 groups and 142 volunteers turn out for its Autumn campaign.

Hatfield Community Free School, Bishops Hatfield and Onslow St Audreys pupils also took part, and excluding the litter-picking from schools, 247 bags were collected.

Joint library manager Jackie Green reported that she could only find half a bag of litter in the vicinity of the library.

Anna from Affinity Water said: "What a cracking afternoon we had. We enjoyed it so much."
