A Thanet mother has hit out at "morons" after her young daughter was injured by glass left smashed on Broadstairs beach.
Vikki Payne posted pictures on Twitter of her child lying in a hospital bed with her right foot in a bandage with cuts.
She is furious at the state of the sands, littered with broken glass, where the little girl was hurt.
The angry mother, from Ramsgate, accompanied the pictures with the words: "My brave little girl after morons smashed glass all over Broadstairs beach."
The town is particularly busy this week because of the Broadstairs Folk Festival, where thousands of people flock to venues for live music.
Ms Payne has received support from other parents outraged by her daughter's injury.
She was taken to hospital for treatment and had her right foot bandaged.
Linda Mitchell said on Twitter: "Complete and utter morons, oblivious or uncaring about the consequences of their actions. Get well soon."
And Shaun Miles said: "Hope she gets well soon. Some people don't think of the consequences when they act like idiots!"
Volunteers are said to have spent four hours clearing smashed glass from Broadstairs beach.
