Having travelled along the A64 from Rillington to York I was depressed at the incredible amount of plastic and rubbish all along the roadside all the way to York.

I don’t know if there is an official body responsible for cleaning this up: if there is, it’s not happening. If there isn’t can I suggest our outer and inner York MPs get together to organise the road to be closed for 12 hours at a weekend and the press to advertise for volunteers (including myself) to clean this disgraceful mess up.

Closing the road would also be a great way to highlight plastic pollution issues and clean it safely. The A1237 northern ring road is also an utter disgrace.
