500 bags in litter pick

NEARLY 500 bags of rubbish was cleared from the verges of the A38 between Kilburn and Alfreton.

Workers from Amber Valley Borough Council and highway contractors Aone+ collected 5,700kg of litter during the £10,000 clean-up operation, between Kilburn and Alfreton.

In a bid to save money the litter pick was carried out while the contractors were closing lanes for routine maintenance.
