Mounds of wet wipe waste reaching record levels on the banks of the Thames

The environmental organisation Thames 21 are expecting a record breaking build up of wet wipes and sanitary products on the shore of the river since they began their annual count.

The groups volunteers will take to the bank below Hammersmith bridge on Saturday where mounds made up entirely of flushed waste have been forming.

The event hopes encourage people to bin it - not flush it.
