Hundreds of people flock to Birmingham park - leaving it with piles of rubbish

·1-min read

Shocking video shows piles of dumped rubbish after hundreds of people flocked to   parks to enjoy the Bank Holiday sunshine. 

Dozens of carrier bags could be seen discarded across fields and piled next to bins after selfish revellers left behind their trash at Birmingham's Cannon Hill Park. 

Members of the public descended on the beauty spot to soak up the 23c temperatures for the first public holiday since national lockdown rules were relaxed on May 17.

But many refused to take their rubbish with them after enjoying the scorching sunshine leading to a large scale clean-up operation. 

One onlooker said: "It's all too common unfortunately, we've spent the morning helping to pick up this mess and it will probably be a similar scene tomorrow. 

"I've never understood how people can be so thoughtless, its not that difficult to take your litter with you."

Another resident added: "I've lived here 20 years and whenever the weather is nice, you just know this lovely park is going to look like the aftermath of a music festival the next day. It's really sad really." 

Today (Mon) is expected to be the warmest day of the year so far after the Met Office predicted highs of 25c across some parts of Britain.
