WE know we have a situation going on, but the state of our streets in Darlington due to the council decision to bag up bins to prevent people using them and not to clear any litter up is unbelievable.

I have never seen this town so dirty with litter. Surely with the correct PPE, which should be the norm, the council can still keep this town free from this unhygienic dreadful state.
