Letter: Litter - Our call to rethink charges

I read, with interest, your article in last week’s Advertiser about how local litter pickers turned out in force for the Great British Spring Clean and I totally applaud all who took part. It is always fantastic when communities come together for their communities.

Northern Rail’s regional director, Paul Barnfield, speaks of “transforming stations”, including Harrogate, with automatic gate lines (Advertiser, March 9). These work well at Leeds and elsewhere.
