North of the spot - all the way up into the Scottish Borders - litter! North and south

Unbelievable the litter on both sides of the A1 all the way north of here - clearly not been picked for months and months if not longer. All the way up pask Alnwick, through Northumberland. It creates a hideous impression for anyone travelling. Most from lorries and flat bed trucks that blow off the back.
Thank you for contacting Highways England concerning litter along this stretch. We shall look into this issue and aim to provide a response by 30/04/21.
Can we please ask that you check back on this date for an update.
