Dustbin liners may be coming to Watford. They were suggested by Councillor Roy Deane, chairman of Watford Highways and Works Committee, on Tuesday.

He advanced the idea after vigorous protests from members – and a petition from residents in West Watford – over the unreliable refuse collection.

After the dustmen have been, brooms are needed to clean up the mess in alleys in Bradshaw Ward, said Councillor Bill Everett.
