Claims of gum litter reductions to be checked

Please go to www.chewinggumactiongroup.org.uk/news and look up the news item dated 6th October 2013.

It says, referring to the Chewing Gum Action Group’s 2013 anti- gum litter campaign:

“Results from previous years demonstrate the significant impact of the campaign on gum litter levels. Following 2012’s activity, gum litter levels fell by an average of 54% in participating areas, with some authorities reporting even better results. Cardiff Council reported a 93% decrease whilst Nottingham City Council and Coventry City Council announced drops of 88% and 85% respectively”.

I find these claims so incredible that I have asked Cardiff, Nottingham and Coventry city councils for the supporting evidence.
