VOLUNTEERS have dug deep to tackle rubbish on an estate.

A group of residents, workers and staff from Leicester City Council spent Monday cleaning up litter in the Saffron Lane area.

Twenty five tonnes of rubbish were removed from streets including Neston Gardens, Neston Road and Windy Road.

The event was set up by staff from Saffron neighbourhood housing office.
Organiser Stacey Hewitt, 41, of Stocking Farm, said: “It was a massive success by everyone to clear so much rubbish despite the bad weather.

“All the staff and volunteers contributed to the clean-up to make this happen.

“We managed to remove graffiti and the carpenters cut back untidy shrubbery and we dealt with grot-spots targeted by fly-tippers near to Kingfisher Community Centre.”

End.
