RUBBISH: Coppice is a real eyesore

editorial image

Can I ask when, if ever, the council is going to clear the enormous amount of rubbish in the small coppice of wood beside Sainsbury’s supermarket in Whitley Bay?

It is a disgrace and has been getting worse over the last few years. It is an eyesore and a danger to health if children try to clamber through.

There are bottles, cans and even a small tyre to be seen.

We have a small road sweeper that has paraded around the Beaumont Park estate over the last few months at regular intervals, even when there are no leaves or other detritus to pick up.

Surely this time would be better spent with a ‘litter-picker’ at least making some attempt to clear out the rubbish in this wood.
