Commercial Waste Health & Safety issue Sharrock Street Southport

Local shopkeepers in Cambridge Arcade and Chapel Street, Southport, have turned to OTS in a bid to highlight the Health & Safety issue that exists in Sharrock Street, Southport (behind their shops).

Commercial waste bins have been left overflowing with rubbish for months and rats continue to feed from the waste food left in plastic bags that litter the ground.

Their complaints have fallen on deaf ears at Sefton Council so the shopkeepers decided to contact Southport’s number 1 news media outlet OTS News (Onthespot News) in a bid to get something done about the dreadful situation.
