The corner of Comely Bank Road and Brunswick Street E17, yesterday. That's a council street sweepings sack, thoughtlessly dumped for collection by an untrained worker. Try getting through that gap with a mobility scooter,a wheelchair or a double buggy. Apart from not tackling the problem of properties which have overgrown vegetation intruding on narrow pavements,
the council subcontracts street cleaning to a firm which doesn't train its workers not to dump street sweepings sacks by cycle stands or in a way that obstructs the pavement.
