Cranfield beach a dirty disgrace

MY wife and I had occasion to visit Cranfield beach on Carlingford Lough last weekend. Well, all I can say is – what a disgrace.

It's the dirtiest beach I've ever seen. There's litter everywhere, which included tins of every description, various plastic items, old disused piping, barbed wire, dog poo and, at one point, a soiled baby's nappy. Is Cranfield beach supposed to be a Blue Flag beach?

I know, with the recent storms, various items have been washed up, but surely Newry and Mourne council has a responsibility for the upkeep of this wonderful beach? Indeed, surely there's a health and safety issue here.
