UKIP take up cause of Tilbury resident as litter filled parks cause Betsy the dog injury

DESPITE the change in political regime at Thurrock Council, it seems that there is continued frustration with the litter epidemic in the borough.

YT has just receive this press release from UKIP and there anger has been echoed across Thurrock, especially on social media sites.

Stifford Clays residents have written to their Ukip councillors about the state of their ward. There has also been a great deal of anger in East Tilbury and Stanford-le-Hope.

Tilbury resident Rodney Vann wants to know why he, as a rate payer, is having to pay vet bills on top when the Council is "failing to properly look after Tilbury’s parks and open spaces".

Tilbury resident Rodney Vann said: "I am disgusted at the state of open areas in Tilbury, the amount of bin cans, smashed glass everywhere. It’s caused injury to my dog Betsy and resulted in £450 vet bill, with more to come. The Council should start looking after Tilbury and making sure our open spaces are safe for everyone and animals."

Cllr Tim Aker MEP said: "There’s no excuse for Tilbury’s open spaces to be in the state they’re in. Parents and dog walkers should be very concerned that the Labour Council turned a blind eye to Tilbury as broken glass and needles haver been seen in Tilbury’s Parks. Our UKIP team will be pressing the new Council to deliver more for Tilbury."

Tilbury St. Chads Cllr John Allen said: "Something must be done about this sooner rather than later. I am always available to visit and help any resident who spots fly tipping or rubbish in Tilbury’s open spaces."
