Hit squad to blitz litter in Leeds

Have your say

A crack team of litter wardens are being brought in to clean up Leeds.

From Monday (April 22), anyone caught dropping rubbish in the city centre will be slapped with an on-the-spot £75 fine.

There will be no second chances, says the council, which has employed four dedicated litter wardens to tackle city litter bugs.

The three men and one woman will scour the streets for anyone dropping chewing gum, cigarette butts, crisp packets and other rubbish.

A fifth will patrol residential areas.
