Burning bed on the beach

One WBRA member, Stephen Betts, recently reported a burnt out bed on the banks of the Waiorongomai Stream:

Went for a walk down to Waiorongomai Stream this morning picking up the usual detritus on the way.

This is what I found on the beach near the stream. It looks like someone has burnt out a bed since yesterday and had a bit of a party with some household waste.

It’s so frustrating: not only an illegal fire on the beach, but dumping rubbish along with it.

That wire looks exactly like the kind of thing that could catch a human foot, a horse hoof or a dog paw, especially with a thin layer of sand blown over it.

Here’s hoping Kāpiti District Council will remove the rubbish.
