Litter posing a risk to environmental health.

Reported via mobile in the Street cleaning and litter category anonymously at 18:29, Wednesday 25 August 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 2958935.

The whole of Picardy Road is completely covered in litter. Especially the bottom half coming up from the station. Loose along the pavements and roads. Bags of rubbish left in the street and I have seen rats in the bags. People with young children and prams/pushchairs have to walk in the very busy road so that they don’t have to walk through filth. Extremely unsanitary and unacceptable.
