Blight hits west York

Good to see that the litter bin on Tadcaster Road, which we reported last week as being full, was quickly emptied by the Council.

Shame that we are now seeing an increase in other examples of environmental crime

Empty cans blight the cycle underpass at London Bridge despite two litter bins being provided. Graffiti also a continuing problem.

Seat dumped in Acomb Wood. Been a lot of problems with litter there. The wood is maintained by volunteers, is a heaven for wildlife and a popular walk for locals.
