Yesterday I was informed of a group who were drinking and swearing a long the tow path of the Wyrley and Essington Canal .near Measham Way.

There shouldn’t be any drinking Parties taking place on the Wyrley and Essington Canal now, and there certainly shouldn’t be youths egging their dog onto attack the Swans!

I shall report the matter to Wednesfield Police and the Canal and River Trust . If it happens again the householders should ring 101 and report the matter direct to the Police.

I was also informed that someone had driven a vehicle into the Garages in Thornley Close and fly tipped rubbish. What makes people so intent on dragging down Ashmore Park? We now have fly tipped rubbish in at least two other Garage sites. I will report that matter today. But the fact is that this rubbish will stay longer than it would normally because of the Covid-19 situation.

Please readers do your bit today to defeat this Covid-19 virus and stay at home, if you can
