Ipswich councillors have been out litter-picking in the town to help launch the Great British September Clean campaign.

Labour borough councillors from the south west area Phil Smart, Peter Gardiner, Bryony Rudkin, Colin Smart, Tracy Grant and Jenny Smith collected litter in the Chantry area.

They did their litter pick around the Hawthorn Drive shops and car park.

Volunteers, local authorities, charities and businesses were originally geared up to take part in the Great British Spring Clean from March to April, but the drive was postponed due to coronavirus lockdown.

So it is now an autumn clean instead, running from September 11-27.
