It is so sad to see the amount of litter all the way along this portion of the A1 ... it is everywhere and there has been no excuse not to have it cleared up especially with hardly any traffic on the roads! It makes the county look terrible! There seems to be no pride in keeping the grass verges clean but happy to put traffic cones everywhere with no work being carried out for months!
