Message from the litter pram
Baby made from litter is aimed to raise awareness

A Lincolnshire man plans to protest against people dropping litter by pushing a pram full of rubbish from Edinburgh to London.

Peter Chapman lives near Sleaford and hopes his 400 mile trek will get more people to take greater care of their environment.

The old-fashioned pram holds a baby made out of litter.

Mr Chapman, a former body-building champion, said, "It is a symbol that we are being born into a bit of a litter bin and if I had a child today I would be really concerned over what they were being born into.

"We just seem to be going backwards in our awareness about ourselves and our environment and certainly things are not improving."

He plans to begin his trek on Saturday and hopes it will take him about a month to complete.
