How clean are the streets in Bradford and Leeds compared to the rest of the UK?

A street cleanliness survey for the whole of the UK has been released by the GMB union.

Of the 20 local councils in Yorkshire and Humberside, Bradford came off worst in 20th. Kirklees was 7th, Leeds 9th and Wakefield 10th.

Tim Roach, GMB Regional Secretary for Yorkshire and Humberside said "There is an alarmingly high and dangerous level of dirty streets and pavements in far too many places. On average the 12% of streets that are officially classified as unacceptable is bad enough but there are 9 councils in this region that have a higher proportion than that which is totally unacceptable."
