Stop spoiling countryside: Catch the litter louts

THE summer has come, and with it the litter louts.

Walking on Somersall playing fields through to Walton, the amount of litter left behind is absolutely disgusting.

It mainly consists of food bags, drinks cans, pop bottles and disposable barbecues.

It’s not as if there are no litter bins nearby!

I think it is about time there was some sort of monitoring by Chesterfield Borough Council, or even better by the police in order to catch the culprits and make them think twice about spoiling our landscape for everyone.

Dogs are also very vulnerable to broken glass, and the carelessness of litter louts can result in an expensive bill for pet owners in Chesterfield and beyond!
