Filthy streets give York a bad image
AS A regular visitor to York for many years, I have noticed on recent visits how filthy and litter-strewn the pavements have become.
This has been noticeable for a couple of years, but since the beginning of this year the streets in central parts of the city are truly disgusting.
Further making the city less attractive to visitors is what appears to be a large number of individuals using the gardens and shop doorways as public toilets, the evidence of which is all around.
Last Saturday evening the waiting coach drivers were using the Memorial Gardens as such, in full view of passers-by. How long will it be before tourists give York a miss and visit alternative cities instead?
