Warning signs could prove useful in cracking down on littering.

This week, warning signs have been proposed for a campaign to curb littering in Darwen, Lancashire, a problem which councillors feel is damaging the town's image.

There is a particular problem at Darwen Services, councillor John East told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"All the hedges are full of rubbish and I want to get the message out to motorists that when they have their bacon butty in the morning, to keep the wrappers in the car, not to throw them out of the window," he said.

In co-operation with the Highways Agency and Blackburn with Darwen Council, a range of ideas, including putting up warning signs urging people not to litter, and issuing leaflets to motorists when they are waiting in traffic, have been proposed.

This month, Keep Britain Tidy launched LoveCleanStreets, a free online tool for Londoners to upload photos of their areas.

The photos, once uploaded, are then displayed on high-tech maps.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800419446-ADNFCR
