WHAT a depressing journey it is these days driving down the A65 looking at the litter strewn verges and hedgerows. This can only be a consequence of motorists discarding the said litter as they drive around, but why?

We all complain about council tax charges but these include refuse collections. Would it be so difficult for motorists to take their litter home and place it in their bin then our beautiful countryside would not be blighted in such a way. Driving around Germany and Switzerland, for example, is such a pleasure. Why can’t people appreciate our country and look after it?
