Litter along road edge m53 junction 7 North bound onwards to junction 3

Reported via mobile in the Litter category anonymously at 18:38, Sunday 3 January 2021

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

The edges of the motorway are strewn with plastic litter, some has been cut up by maintenance strimming but hasn't been cleared which seems counterproductive. Especially bad as you enter the motorway slip road at junc 7 but also very unsightly along the whole of the motorway on the Wirral.
