A LIST of the “freakiest” findings found by volunteers based along the River Clyde have been revealed.

The volunteers from environmental charity “Keep Scotland Beautiful” have been collecting litter and recording data on the types and quantities found in the Clyde river catchment for more than 10 months.

And some of the weird and wonderful items that have been rescued from the river and the riverside include a 4ft long decomposing python, Edwardian coins, an ornamental brass horse and cart, a jester’s hat, a chemical toilet, an original Shrek VHS tape, and coconuts.

The charity is now challenging people to recover and record even more freaky findings as part of the Upstream Battle Week of Action.

Running until September 20, the week of action will see litter picks take place every day so individuals, community groups and businesses can help reduce the amount of litter that reaches the sea from the Clyde and waterways which flow into it.

The most unusual find photographed and submitted on social media or emailed to upstreambattle@keepscotlandbeautiful.org will be presented with a prize of a recycled plastic bench donated by Recoup and Berry BPI, one of the campaign funders.

Paul Wallace, of Keep Scotland Beautiful, said: “We want to challenge everyone living along the Clyde to take part and help find, record and remove, the weird and wonderful ‘rubbish’, along with the mundane litter that people have carelessly discarded.

“Upstream Battle is encouraging people to stop dropping litter, look after our river and ultimately protect our seas. Every drinks bottle or crisp packet picked up during the week of action reduces the amount of rubbish that could end up in our seas.”
