Shopping trolley near pier an unwelcome tourist attraction

AN ABANDONED shopping trolley on the flats near the Urangan Pier has become an unwelcome tourist attraction.

Reader Lee Tuthill snapped a photo of the trolley after overhearing a group of tourists talking about how disgusting littering was in the area and spotting what they were looking at.

He said he was sorry he couldn't retrieve the trolley himself because it looked terrible.
