More than 160 people turned out to clean up areas of Ashington as part of a national initiative.

Ashington Town Team and Ashington Town Council co-ordinated the activity in support of the Great British Spring Clean campaign.

Peoples Park, Hirst, Community Woods, Hirst Library and the town centre were among the sections covered. As well as businesses and organisations, school pupils got involved.

Michelle Brannigan from Ashington Town Team said it was a great activity to bring people together.
