FROM an artificial leg to a suspender belt – a Wigan-based charity has revealed the 10 weirdest items found littering our streets.

Keep Britain Tidy says that we as a nation, drop a staggering 30 million tonnes of rubbish every year. Its annual report for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs on how clean our country is of course finds millions of cigarette butts, thousands of plastic bottles and crisp packets. But besides the everyday stuff, the surveyors occasionally find something that stops them in their tracks.

Other items in the top 10 include: a colostomy bag; two really large pike; hundreds of limes; a large collection of adult-only DVDs; and a Barbie doll, hanged by the neck from a tree with one eye burned out and the rest of the doll slightly charred!
