Dead duckling found among litter in Skegness lake

Heartbreaking repercussions of littering

By Local Democracy Reporter

An upsetting case of littering in a Skegness lake has resulted in a baby duckling dying among the waste.

John Byford, a local from Skegness, posted the heartbreaking pictures on social media while on his walk along Marina Lake.

He said: “What I saw horrified me. Dead ducklings stuck in among the rubbish, dead fish, pollution and litter.

“All in what should be one of the the key UK holiday destinations.”
