Bella swam several times into the quarry and collected plastic bottles that had been carelessly thrown away, before swimming back to her owner Daniel, who put them in the bin.

Leeds City Council's Clean Leeds Twitter account, which promotes a cleaner greener Leeds, posted about Bella's good deeds.

Andrea Garnett replied: "She certainly looks likes she enjoyed doing a great job."

Dan King said: "Great team work. Well done."

While Amanda Glasper posted: "Bella certainly lives up to her name."

Chippies Quarry is named after Isaac Chippindale, who started the Scholes Brick and Tile Works on Wood Lane.

The company's quarry produced high-quality bricks used to build houses in the area.

Its kilns and house were demolished in the early 1980s, leaving two small fishing lakes - known as Chippies Quarry.
