Rubbish dumped on the streets of a Sheffield community was cleared up during a litter picking operation.

Volunteers from Tinsley donned their rubber gloves for a day-long event designed to clear an area blighted by fly-tipping and rubbish.

The first litter pick, arranged by Tinsley community organiser Zahira Naz, involved 12 residents taking part.

Zahira said: “Residents are concerned about the level of rubbish on the streets and fly-tipping, along with the fact this issue is going unnoticed.”

Zahira is now working on a reward scheme with local businesses which would allow volunteers to receive discounts after taking part.
