Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

One of the worst ar­eas of fly tip­ping in the cen­tre of Wishaw has been cleaned up only weeks after a special Wishaw Press in­ves­ti­ga­tion high­light­ing the town’s ‘hid­den shame’.

In our May 31 edi­tion, we called for ur­gent ac­tion to tackle up to half a dozen drink­ing and drug dens be­hind the Main Street.

And the Wishaw Press high­lighted the area be­hind the Cross Keys Inn and for­mer Crown Ho­tel where the waste­land had some of the worse fly tip­ping in the town.

The firm that had dumped a huge skip there went into liq­ui­da­tion and now the coun­cil have taken swift ac­tion to re­move it and clear up the rub­bish which was at­tract­ing large rats to the area.

And the coun­cil have vowed to work with their part­ner agen­cies to clean up the back courts.

Last month, the Wishaw Press were given a tour of some of the run­down hotspots by Alan Love, the sec­re­tary of Cen­tral Wishaw Com­mu­nity Coun­cil.

Mr Love this week said he wel­comed the coun­cil’s move to clean up the eye­sores across the town.
