A well-known Westcountry beauty spot is being ruined by litter louts.
Hopes Nose, at Torquay, is a popular spot along the South West Coast Path taking in the views towards Thatcher Rock and Orestone.
Also popular with anglers, it is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, mainly for its geology, which makes it an important site for the English Riviera Geopark.
But over the summer months, the picturesque vantage point has suffered an enormous amount of littering from picnics and barbecues.
The trust which manages the site said it was happy to welcome visitors to the site all year round but has urged people to clear up after themselves.
Chris Lingard, countryside manager at the Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust, said: "Littering on Hopes Nose causes many problems. Not only is the rubbish unsightly, but it is unsanitary for other users of the site and can be very dangerous to local wildlife.
"This also costs the trust more money in staff time, which could be much better spent on other projects that would otherwise benefit Torbay.
"So we'd like to remind everyone to take their litter home, from Hopes Noses and any other Trust site, and dispose of it responsibly."
Incidents of littering can be reported by phoning the trust's main office on 01803 520022 or by emailing email@example.com
