Northamptonshire residents 'should clean warning signs'

A member of Northamptonshire County Council has said residents should hit the streets with a bucket and sponge and help clean road warning signs.

Heather Smith, responsible for transport and highways at the authority, was speaking on BBC radio.

The call comes amid the news that around 600 people are set to lose their jobs with the council as part of a £68 million cost-cutting drive, the news provider said.

"Is it too much to ask for somebody to go out with a bucket and a sponge in their hands and clean that sign?," she was quoted by the BBC as saying.

The council, which is Conservative-run, is planning to close eight libraries and cut funding for school crossing patrols, with the aim to save £136 million across the next four years.

Residents will be consulted on their views on the budget and a final decision will be made in February next year, the BBC said.

Today (December 16th), the Guardian reported that at least 100,000 public sector workers across the UK are set to lose their jobs by spring.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800295228-ADNFCR
