TORY Parliamentary candidate Stuart Penketh led a campaign day with Ellesmere Port Conservative Future members, the party's youth wing, to clean-up part of Westminster ward.
He said: “It is a shame people have to live, work and play in an area with beer cans, spirit bottles, fast food containers and worse strewn in the trees and bushes.
“How can we expect people to take pride in their area when rusting tins are left strewn in the bushes and rotting food waste is allowed to build up attracting pests and vermin.
“The borough council should be making a better effort at trying to clean up this area.
“It is on the main road into the town centre and doesn't give the impression we want for the town, especially when the residents pay their council tax for this area to be cleaned.”
Mr Penketh cleaned-up the tree line on Station Road approaching the railway bridge, collecting more than four bags of rubbish.
