An eight-year-old girl who visits the West Norfolk coastline regularly and has made a poster to bring awareness to littering on the coastline.

Amaya Edwards saw a dead seal at Hunstanton beach last year with a piece of rubbish around it's neck, which deeply upset her.

She later got to work on designing a poster which has now been sold as a postcard at Hunstanton's Sealife Centre.

Amaya has autism and finds the world difficult at times, after visiting the coast many times she now aspires to become a marine biologist when she's older.

Hunstanton Town Council heard about Amaya's project and wanted to help spread the message.

All proceeds made from Amaya's postcard poster will be donated to The Sealife Trust.

A spokesperson from the town council said: "Amaya couldn't comprehend why people couldn't clean up after themselves when visiting the beach when it is such a simple task and would save many lives."

Great work Amaya!
