FOLLOWING the paper’s recent coverage of streets strewn with litter (letters, Barry & District News, July 24), I write with another concern.

Walk along almost any street in Barry town centre and you will notice numerous blocked drains, along with large deposits of sand and gravel, building up in kerbside guttering.

I have notified the Vale Council several times in recent months, all to no avail.

Are council staff too busy counting their obscene salaries and pension pots to notice the disgraceful condition of our streets and pavements?
