The amount of litter on the A249 is absolutely disgusting - I cannot point you to a particular section because it is like this for the whole length of the dual carriageway. It is embarrassingly bad, the worst I have ever seen it. Foreign drivers must come to our country and wonder how we can stand to leave it in such a filthy state. It's horrendous for the environment, it's a health hazard. Why has it been left to accumulate to such unacceptable levels? There is plastic EVERYWHERE. Sheets of plastic. bags, bottles, you name it, it's there in piles. Rabbits and birds live along this stretch of road and their habitat is completely soiled, it's heartbreaking. Please send a team out to clear it up, it is absolutely awful. And to clarify, it is also the slip roads leading off the A249 to the M2, they are equally as filthy. I think it is blowing in from somewhere, it can't possibly all be from people throwing litter from their vehicles, but whatever the source it is there nonetheless.
