MEMBERS of The Beaufort Hunt joined in with the Big Rural Spring Clean.

Rubber gloves and black bin bags to the fore saw an intrepid Beaufort Hunt team tackle the Fosse Way.

The team cleared litter from The Gibb near Castle Combe to Kemble near Cirencester on Saturday, April 6.

A hunt spokesperson said "It is always upsetting to see the careless way unwanted litter is disregarded, not only is it unsightly but it can cause great damage to the environment."
