Letter - Litter is such a waste of Spring

We should now be looking forward to Spring in our green and pleasant land with flowers everywhere in our hedgerows and footpaths.

But wait, I just walked down Storrs Hill Road from Ossett into Horbury Bridge and made the mistake of looking over the fence, thousands of empty drinks cans, bottles and other debris cover every square foot of thousands of square feet under the trees.

Is this now an official waste tip, it certainly looks like it. Should I ring the council? When I tell them about mattresses and settees they say that’s private land and we can’t touch them.
