A LITTER picking group collected more than 20 bags of rubbish... with a little help from a local MP.

The Wath, West Melton, and Brampton Litter Pickers were joined by three other litter picking groups and Wentworth and Dearne MP John Healey to complete a festive-themed litter pick.

The group collected 26 bags of litter from around the Warren Vale route.

A spokesperson for the group said in a post on Facebook: “We gathered 26 sacks of litter at the Swinton end plus assorted large items. Also leaf, muck shifting and cutting back.

“John Healey MP came along to see each group and did some picking with us.”
