Town's rubbish protest ends early
Litter bin
The council says it wants to tackle litter problems in its towns
East Lothian council is to resume regular street-sweeping in Tranent despite original plans to hold out until the weekend.

Operations were suspended last Saturday as part of an anti-litter campaign.

The controversial initiative was aimed at driving home the anti-litter message and highlighting how much council workers have to clear up every day.

A spokesman said the council had made its point and would start cleaning up from Thursday.
