Cllr Acton and I swept round the ward today – not quite literally – with City Inspector John Whelan. Here he is calling in an emergency response to a pothole in Connaught Street, which a restaurant was using as an alternative to a drain. John also tackled commercial waste left on the highway in Craven Road and Praed Street, a woman dumping rubbish in Sale Place, an abandoned bicycle in Burwood Place, tables and chairs on the highway and a string of litter, uncollected sweeper’s bags, forgotten temporary road signs and other eyesores around the ward. That’s his role five days a week, with additional inspectors covering weekends and nights. Calls to 0207 641 3733 go direct to John’s mobile and he gets straight on the case.
