Campaign to clear street clutter

Unnecessary street "clutter" could be removed from Cambridge as part of a new campaign launched on Thursday.

English Heritage is begining its Save Our Streets scheme, which aims to improve historic areas and landscapes.

Armed with audit sheets, volunteers will walk the city looking for obstacles and eyesores such as broken paths and unnecessary street signs.

Members of the public are encouraged to join the campaign which has the backing of the city and the county councils.

The city's Women's Institute will help carry out the survey which will include overflowing bins, bollards, old utility boxes and other obstacles and clutter.
