The Tidy Britain Group has praised the efforts of metropolitan councils to deal with litter.

Thirty-four of the 37 councils surveyed had improved their performance since 1995.

Improvements included a 31% fall in graffiti in Wigan and a 23% reduction in flyposting in Birmingham. Overall, only 23 of 1,685 bins were overflowing.

The best three councils were Gateshead, Knowsley and North Tyneside MBCs.

'The results of this survey suggest the metropolitan councils are winning the war against litter,' said Tidy Britain Group director general Professor Graham Ashworth.
