Pedestrians using one of the city most travelled underpasses are routinely finding it strewn with trash.
This morning almost the entire the length of the underground section of the subway was lined with rubbish, a large portion of it McDonald’s wrapping.
Also evident were drink containers and a punnet of raspberries which had trodden into the tarmac.

Retail worker Sophie Tupman, who walks through the subway, said: “It’s absolutely disgusting and quite unbelievable to see it like this.
“I know it’s people dropping the mess, but it shows that the cleaning officials need to get on top of getting the cleaning done.
“What visitors must make of it, I shudder to think.”
The lower part of St Dunstan’s Street was also covered in mess yesterday and bins along the bank of the Stour between the St Radigund’s car park and the coach park at Kingsmead are overflowing leaving mess in the undergrowth.

Spokesman Rob Davies said: “We condemn the selfish and lazy individuals who are dropping this litter despite the many bins that are provided across the city.
