Daily Mail's Great Plastic Pick Up is hailed a triumph as incredible 12,000 volunteers remove tons of poisonous litter from Britain's streets, beaches and green spaces.
There were almost 1,100 Pick Up events the length and breadth of the country. Schoolchildren, sports teams, Scout troops and library clubs all joined the effort. Keep Britain Tidy, which helped organise the event, said it was a game-changer.
