A 60-year-old plastic washing-up liquid bottle has been found washed up on the beach.

Stephen Fox was “dismayed” to find the weathered Doby bottle washed up on Brean beach near Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset.

The bottle dates back to the mid-1950s – but it is not known how long it has been in the sea.

Stephen said: “I was doing a beach clean and I was dismayed by how much plastic there was on Brean beach.

“I found this bottle. I thought it may be old and a quick Google search confirms it’s from the 50s or 60s.”
