The images, taken by Elle Photography, show her tangled in plastic bags and surrounded by litter.

Miss Griffiths hopes the pictures will encourage people to be “more responsible and help keep our beaches and oceans plastic free”.

They are also intended to raise awareness for Surfers Against Sewage, a marine conservation charity working to protect oceans, waves, beaches and wildlife.
