I was with John Read of Clean Up Britain and Alex Thomson of Channel 4 News this morning on the A405 just south of J21 of the M25.

When we arrived someone was litter picking on the other side of the road. But it wasn’t anyone from their group. It was Dave from St Albans who was there purely by chance. He had filled 5 bags,

Apparently he simply goes off in his car and when he sees a roads-side that needs a tidy up stops and gets to work.

You may see him on Channel 4 News on or after Monday, 3rd February.
