Bristol's city centre is getting deep cleaned and disinfected to help curb the spread of coronavirus.

High contact areas like bus stops, benches, railings, pedestrian crossings and other street equipment will all be thoroughly cleaned by street cleansing teams from Bristol City Centre Business Improvement District (BID)

The team, which cleans the city centre seven days a week, has been using specialist disinfectant for all its operations since the beginning of March.

It will be regularly cleaning all street furniture and areas outside local supermarkets, chemists, the Bristol Royal Infirmary and other high-footfall locations until further notice.

Vicky Lee, project lead for the street cleansing team at Bristol at Bristol City Centre BID said, "We have a fantastic team who are proud to be helping to protect city centre residents and workers by thoroughly deep cleaning and disinfecting all high contact areas.

"Naturally, the city centre is unusually quiet due to the current lockdown, but there are still a great many people living and working here, so we're delighted to be able to put our hugely dedicated team and their highly equipped street cleaning fleet to such good use in helping to stop the spread of covid-19 and keep people safe."
