Volunteers in a West Norfolk village had their own Game of Thrones when they unearthed two old commodes during a community litter pick yesterday.

The items were discovered during an event in Outwell on Sunday, just hours before the final series of the smash hit series began.

Around 15 residents of the village, some of whom are pictured above, collected 23 bags of rubbish between them during the event.

The operation, which was organised by the village’s parish council as part of the Great British Spring Clean initiative, focused on the area around the infill canal, which runs between the A1101 and A1122.

A parish council spokesman said: “It was the usual story of cans, more cans, plastic bottles, vodka bottles and crisp bags.

“I don’t think anyone expected to find two commodes, a highways sign and random lumps of metal. It

was a sad illustration of people not caring.

“The volunteers did a brilliant job and it was nice to see people giving up a couple of hours on their Sunday afternoon to pick up other peoples’ rubbish.”
