A CLEAN-UP operation hopes to recruit hundreds of residents to blitz the River Thames.

Environmental charity Thames21 will coordinate the Cleaner Thames Challenge 2009 due to start next Thursday.

The exact locations of four flash-mob cleans targeting the river's foreshore will be kept a secret until today one week before the blitz.

Thames21's river programmes manager, Chris Coode, said: "The Cleaner Thames Challenge 2009 will be a real pan-London effort.

"The four different locations will give people from all over London an ideal chance to get involved in our work and make a lasting improvement to the environment."

All necessary equipment, including wellies will be provided. For information visit: www.thames21.org.uk. Cleaner Thames Challenge 2009.
