Scottish cities are too dirty to qualify for a place in the Britain's Cleanest City 1997 competition, reports the Glasgow Herald (p17).

The biennial competition organised by the British Cleaning Council has only English finalists, from which a winner will be announced tomorrow. They are Birmingham, Chester, Leicester, Oxford, Peterborough, Portsmouth, Rochester-Upon-Medway, Stoke-On-Trent, Truro and Westminster.

None of Scotland's five cities nominated themselves for consideration in the contest, which focuses on the cities' appearance to tourists.

Glasgow said it was preparing for CCT in cleaning services and hoped to be ready for the following competition, while Aberdeen - which won the title four years ago - said it did not have the staff time or resources to devote to the contest.
