LETTER: Council could set up a hit squad to blitz trouble-spots

This problem seems endemic in and around Wisbech.

Down New Drove there are piles of cans. There are probably four solutions to this problem:

• The area either needs policing and fines given out to offenders as a deterrent.

• Bins could be provided which would need emptying regularly.

• Local people could volunteer to routinely clean the area.

• The council could set up a hit squad to blitz littered areas when they are reported.

I personally favour option four. I have seen this work in other areas, in between waiting for reports council pickers could clean each area on a rota basis.

The cost would have to be met collectively through the Council Tax but it would be a small price to pay to see our town restored to its former glory so that people could again take pride in.
