Volunteers help litter-pick after Northampton beauty spot left covered in rubbish

The council and a group of volunteers have been clearing up litter that was left in a beauty spot in Northampton. Abington Park was left covered in rubbish after the warm weather yesterday, 30th March.

Northampton Borough Council have thanked volunteers and said they had to divert staff from less urgent duties to deal with the clear up.

There's pleas for locals to take their rubbish home so that everyone can enjoy open spaces like Abington Park as lockdown restrictions ease.
