A one day event to tackle backyard rubbish in an area of Blyth has been claimed a success.

The Cowpen Quay area received the attention of officers from Northumberland County Council’s highways and neighbourhood services, waste, public protection, parking services and enforcement team, officers from the police and representatives from Northumberland Fire and Rescue’s fire safety academy, who all worked to remove rubbish.

The clean-up followed the council saying it will be taking action against tenants and landlords who do not keep their areas tidy.
