  1. People everywhere are behaving like animals leaving carcasses of food drink and general litter in their wake.tjis can be seen not only at Thanet’s lovely beaches but inland as well. Dumping unwanted clothes mattresses etc anywhere they’s a complete disgrace and needs dealing with. We are becoming a filthy country and are an embarrassment to visitors from abroad and the lack of pride we have for our very beautiful countryside and beaches. So very sad…nothing nice to look at anymore.we need government to react and councils in dealing out very heavy fines for this animal behaviour.
