A cleaner gamely set to work with a shovel in wet conditions today to clear debris and rubbish from Commercial Road, Devizes.

Despite traffic cones and warning notice being placed by Wiltshire Council in the road last night, warning drivers not to park there, several were left there causing an obstruction.

One resident said: "It was a shame that there were a few cars to work around but by the end of the day there was a big stack of bags of waste at the end of the road.

"The cleaner was at it for hours, so full marks to him for effort.

"Perhaps we can encourage the council to keep up the good work now as it had really got beyond a joke.

"However, the gulleys have not been dealt with yet so we'll be keeping an eye on them."

Surely the parked cars could have been booked as the cones suspended any other parking conditions?

Personally, I would have towed them away, crushed them and added points to their licences for total disrespect of the local community?

It was always my assumption that when cones were put out that the last cone defined the end of the restriction. How many cones can be seen in front of the red car in the photo?
