A COUNCILLOR has launched a clean-up campaign in Wollescote in a fight against litter louts.

Labour’s Richard Body is calling on members of the public to join him in weekly hour-long litter picks.

He wants people to “help me clear up after a minority of selfish litter louts and in a small way show these idiots how our community should look.”

Cllr Body added: “The majority of discarded empty bottles I collect are energy drinks. I can't understand after drinking the energy drink, why they haven't got the energy to put their trash in the bin.”

He has pickers, bags and gloves for volunteers and anyone interested in helping should join Cllr Body on Facebook or email cllr.richard.body@dudley.gov.uk for details of the weekly meeting times and locations.
