What sort of person thinks it's a good idea to leave their rubbish like this in the middle of the countryside? Litter picked up today along a half mile stretch of footpath in two fields:
Tied to footbridge: Carrier bag containing empty Tesco Chicken Sandwich wrappers
Discarded on the ground: 3 plastic drinks bottles, 1 plastic sandwich container, 1 cigarette packet, 1 blue plastic carrier bag, 1 sweet wrapper, 1 plastic sleeve from drink, 1 plastic drinks carton
The Countryside Code is very simple - Litter and leftover food doesn't just spoil the beauty of the countryside, it can be dangerous to wildlife and farm animals and can spread disease - so take your litter home with you. Dropping litter and dumping rubbish are criminal offences.
