I WANT to highlight the issue of increasing litter on Black Bear Linear Park running the length from Victoria Park to Stockton Heath swing bridge.

The main problem area is under Loushers Lane bridge, where groups of people gather during the day from Monday to Friday.

They can also sit along the base of the disused railway bridge, although in bad weather they stay under Loushers Lane bridge, literally leaving huge amounts of litter each day.

It goes without saying that it’s a hazard to people, wildlife and is unsightly.

It’s very sad to see and is left to volunteers to clear up the mess. I hope you can help to prevent this problem from getting worse.
