Residents, staff from Canal & River Trust and members of Mexborough First political party joined forces to clear rubbish from the side of South Yorkshire Navigation Canal in Mexborough.

They filled more than a dozen big bags with litter on Saturday, November 22.

The group took action after complaints from residents about the state of the canal-side and its effect on local wildlife.
