A homeless artist who leaves no stone unturned will be evicted from a beach.

Dr Geebers, as he prefers to be known, has walked the entire coast of the United Kingdom creating pebble artworks on beaches.

But, after returning to Brighton, stony-faced council chiefs have ordered the 37-year-old to leave the beach near Black Rock, where he sleeps in a tent.

An eviction notice was served yesterday (April 28) and he has 24 hours to move on.

This is despite more than 150 people signing a petition to allow him to stay and complete his Brighton Rocks 2013 pebble montage.

Dr Geebers said: “I grew up on the streets so I’ll just have to find somewhere else to go and live.

“It’s a shame as I’ll have to get rid of the art as some of the rocks are not safe and could fall over.”
