A BIG tidy-up has taken place at a site in Whittlesey which has been plagued by antisocial behaviour.

Residents living near the redundant garage site at Drybread Road had raised concerns about health and safety, noise and mess.

Fenland District Council, which owns the site, organised a day of action which brought together police, council officers and members of the Community Payback scheme to clean it up and discuss antisocial behaviour.

Garages were emptied and plenty of rubbish, including gas canisters and petrol cans, was collected.

Each garage has now been secured and the roofs painted with anti-climb paint, provided free by CCORRN Repaint, to prevent future access.
