Abandoned bottles, wrappers and plastic litter swarmed the city's hotspots after hottest day so far.

After visitors headed to Cardiff Bay and Barry Island to soak up the sunshine on 30th March, Cardiff council were out from 6am Wednesday morning to pick up the masses of litter left behind.

In the bay, bins were overflowed with litter and groups of rubbish were left scattered across the steps of the Senedd.

Cardiff council tweeted: "Our cleansing teams started #WorkingForCardiff at 6am this morning and spent 3 hours clearing the unacceptable amount of litter left in Cardiff Bay yesterday. Please help #KeepCardiffTidy – if bins are full, take your litter home with you".

Locals were appalled at the sites on Wednesday morning.

A local resident replied: "Thank you to all council cleansing staff. How absolutely disgusting that people chose to leave their rubbish wherever it suited them. Bins full? Take it home! Shameful".

Another added: "If you bring it with you, take it home with you, if you enjoy the outside space, beach, park, don’t destroy it with your litter!".

In Barry island Cans, bottles, buckets and nappies were pictured washed up on the shore.
