Written By: Philip Eno on 09/04/14 at 3:11 am

Striking images have emerged on Chinese media of thousands of people digging for clams on a long stretch of beach in Shangdong Province, south of the capital Beijing.

The beaches were previously used as private clam farms, but the government recently opened up about 4km (2.5 miles) of coastline for public access, Chinese website NetEase News reports.

"The number of people here is likely more than that of clams at its peak," one fisherman tells reporters at the beach, the Shanghaiist blog says.
