Volunteers from the University of Lincoln have been cleaning out Brayford Pool today.

In the annual Brayford Clean Up event on March 30 a number of students helped to pull litter out of the water.

Last year students found trolleys and traffic cones in the water.

Tasnim Hassan, Vice President Welfare and Community officer at Lincoln Students’ Union said: “This is our fifth year of doing this and we have definitely had an amazing student turn out.”
