NOT ONLY AN­GLERS AT FAULT

Sea Angler (UK) - - Mailbox -

In re­ply to Cllr Rus­sell Cherry (is­sue 527), I dis­agree with how much rub­bish is left be­hind by so-called an­glers at Til­bury Fort seawall. It seems that ev­ery­one is quick to blame a cer­tain mi­nor­ity of peo­ple rather than the ma­jor­ity.

Firstly, I am a reg­u­lar vis­i­tor to the area and, yes, there is a cer­tain amount of lit­ter, but no more than any other street in Thur­rock.

As an­glers, we should clear up af­ter our­selves but so should ev­ery­body else. This leads me to the sub­ject of the huge amount of dog mess along this stretch. Does Mr Cherry not want to up­set the dog lovers? I ap­plaud the idea of a clean-up, but the coun­cil has a duty to sup­ply dog bins as well as other bins.

Don’t just pick on an­glers. Could I sug­gest that you send a dog war­den to this area once in a while and catch the cul­prits.
