AN INTERACTIVE map has been launched on our website to highlight the “grot spots” as part of our war on litter.

The Let’s Clean Up campaign aims to clear the streets of Stamford, Rutland, Bourne and the Deepings of litter by getting people to report the untidiest areas.

They are then passed onto the local councils which have promised to do their bit by clearing the streets.

And we have had such a magnificent response to the campaign that we have launched an interactive map on our website, which can be viewed by visiting www.stamfordmercury.co.uk/letscleanup

You can also keep up-to-date with the latest news and stories on the campaigns on that section.

And if you mention our campaign on Twitter, any posts that mention #letscleanup will also appear on the dedicated section of our website.

Mercury editor Eileen Green said: “We launched our campaign because so many people had contacted us raising concerns about litter.

“But we have been overwhelmed with the response so far which is why we launched this dedicated section of our website.

“I hope people continue to back our Let’s Clean Up campaign.”

Already street cleaners working for South Kesteven District Council, Rutland County Council and East Northamptonshire Council have been out in their vans clearing the areas we have reported.

An eagle-eyed reader reported flytipping in Black Prince Avenue, Market Deeping to us, and within days South Kesteven District Council had cleared the area.

Other areas that have been cleared include Borderville in Ryhall Road, Stamford, the B668 between Little Bytham and Castle Bytham, Empingham Road in Stamford and Ashwell Road in Oakham.
