plastic we found on the beach this
morning. Look at all that rubbish
that has been collected in the last
hour or so. There is a new project
to try to clean up the beaches, get
rid of the plastic using one of
these, a drone camera. The idea is

beach, click where it is and get it
cleaned up. Eddie is flying the
drone, is it that simple?
