Council workers have been sweeping up leaves by the tonne to keep South Norfolk’s streets and pavements clear and clean.

Street crews have been collecting more than six tonnes a day on average as they target areas where leaf falls have been especially heavy.

The councils brand new fleet of road sweepers have helped to pick up nearly 100 tonnes in total so far - and they are still at it.

Kay Mason Billig, the council cabinet member for the environment and recycling, said: “South Norfolk Council is working with our local communities to help keep routes in and out of our market towns clear of a build-up of leaves and pleasant and easy to use.

“The recent high winds have made this work even more important, and our teams will continue the great job they are doing sweeping South Norfolk from top to bottom.”
