Litter Louts Face Crackdown

Dealing with litter on our streets has been declared the number 1 priority by local Conservatives. You'd think that would be something that all parties could agree on. Alas, Shepway Lib Dem leader Cllr "Bandwagon" Beaumont has criticised local Conservative leader Cllr Robert Bliss for prosecuting those who drop litter in the district.

Cllr Bliss lamented, "We clear a street and before we get to the end more litter has been dropped at the beginning."

I can relate to that problem, having cleared the cliff path down from the Road of Remebrance last year. By the time we got to the bottom of the cliff, several items had been dropped at the top, not 10 yards from a litter bin. I'm quite certain that the vast majority of residents will welcome the crack down
