A skeleton vomiting washed-up plastic “shocked and amazed” people on Aberystwyth’s seafront.

Walker Wright, 37, created the driftwood artwork to “bring attention to the issue of plastic waste, not just in my community but in the world”.

The Borth artist displayed the piece for a few hours on Saturday and is now looking for a permanent home for it.
