As the number of climbers on Mount Everest has soared - at least 600 people have scaled the world's highest peak so far this year alone - the problem has worsened.

This season even more was carried down but this is just a fraction of the rubbish dumped each year, with only half of climbers lugging down the required amounts, the SPCC says.
