Health risk rubbish cleared from Co-Op car park – thanks largely to MP Grant Shapps.
He stepped in after shoppers raised concerns about the car park near the Co-Op on Bishops Rise in Hatfield.
Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps said:
“As soon as I was made aware of the issue I contacted the Co-Op bosses asking them to step in. I was particularly concerned at the potential health risks, particularly during warmer weather.”
“They have now cleared the area”.
The Co-Op Public Affairs Manager, John Munro, said:
“We have, as a gesture of goodwill toward our neighbours and the wider local community, arranged for this rubbish to be disposed of.”
Mr Shapps praised Co-Op management for acting and thanked shoppers for bringing this issue to his attention.
“I am also urging the borough council to ensure this area is cleared on a more regular basis.”
