WELL, I’m glad the head of Darlington council, who decided to stop doing some types of waste collection when its most needed and to close the civic amenities site when hygiene is of the utmost importance, isn’t in charge of our health service.

Surely they could have organised the safe collection and disposal of the waste in a manner that is acceptable for the employees and public.

May I say thank you NHS and everyone who has volunteered to work so we can all stay at home and be safe.
