Travelogue about plastic pollution in Portsmouth

To help with the Revolution Plastics project, the illustrator Louis Netter and I spent a day searching Portsmouth’s coasts for plastic pollution. We encountered fly-tipped building materials, polythene-harassed fishermen advocating a return to paper bags and an entire fibreglass boat that was abandoned ‘years and years’ ago, according to a local. Our words and illustrations about all that were in last Saturday’s Weekend supplement of The News. You can read the whole thing online here.
