Conservatives get glass used as grit removed from streets

In the cold snap after Christmas, the Council decided to put down broken glass on the pavements around Greenwich instead of grit. Over a month later in March the glass still lay in patches around various streets and Conservatives led by parliamentary spokesman Spencer Drury have been organising street cleaning in the worst affected areas. Spencer said “Clearly the glass was not going to melt and so had to be swept up. This is tricky as many pieces are small and you can still see it lying on many streets. I have questioned the Council about this policy and they are unlikely to use this sort of glass again.”
