Broken glass in Brighton (and everywhere else)

Uncleared glass in the road is causing punctures for cyclists across Brighton and Hove. One cyclist has suffered four flat tyres in a week because of the sharp objects. Steve Prince, 47, has branded himself as the unluckiest man in the city because of the punctures. Mr Prince, of Golf Drive, Brighton, said: “I’m sick of it, I’m absolutely sick of it.

Tony Green, of Bricycles, the Brighton, Hove and district cyclist group, said: “We have had two or three people coming to us about glass in the streets.
They say the recycling lorries are the cause.”
