WELL-KNOWN for its iconic peb­bly beach, there are fears that Brighton’s coast­line is just a stone’sthrow from be­com­ing a sandy beach.

The Brighton Tourism Al­liance blames the out-of-towners who of­ten take a peb­ble or two with them as a sou­venir of their trip.

So, they have spear­headed the ‘Bring a Peb­ble Back to Brighton’ ini­tia­tive. Vis­i­tors are be­ing urged to bring a peb­ble with them when they next visit – and leave it on the beach.

The ma­jor cul­prits are Lon­don­ers says spokesper­son Claire Ot­tewell.

“We have no prob­lem with the Welsh or the brum­mies.

“But it is the Lon­don­ers who al­ways to want to take a lit­tle bit of Brighton away with them” she laments.

“Maybe it is be­cause Brighton is known as London-by-the-sea.”

Let’s hope their plea doesn’t fall on stoney ground.
