A bus stop sign, a traffic cone and a gate were collected in a community litter blitz.

Hollinsend Cricket Club hosted the clean-up with Birley councillors, young people and residents as part of its Cricket Force Weekend to prepare for the forthcoming season.

More than 25 bags of rubbish were cleared.

Coun Karen McGowan said: “This was the fourth Birley Blitz event we have organised and we were pleased to be joined by residents.”
