Vast amounts of litter

Whilst out walking yesterday I noted the huge amount of litter around the A5/A43 roundabout and northwards on the A5. The rubbish includes bottles, plastic, wood, paper, and even disused road signs. What an absolute mess! Many minor roads are in a similar state and I have contacted NCC Highways about this. Surely you should show some pride about your responsibilities?
