Braintree district: TV show picks out district's litter fight for praise
3:00pm Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
Braintree's no nonsense approach to litter was in the spotlight as the district featured in a BBC documentary.
Entitled Our Dirty Nation, Monday night’s special Panorama programme, presented by journalist and Labour peer Dane Joan Bakewell, argued that people need to take more pride in their surroundings to tackle Britain’s spiralling litter problem.
Joan visited Braintree and Halstead about three weeks ago to look at Braintree Council’s “zero- tolerance approach” to tackling the issue since the launch of its Green Heart of Essex campaign three years ago.
She returned for the filming of an evening of enforcement action in Braintree on Saturday.
