Three new sweepers will be keeping the streets of South Ribble clean.

South Ribble Council has invested £250,000 in the new additions, which will replace older vehicles.

Two are smaller for use on footpaths, car parks and back alleys. The third is a larger sweeper supplied by Leyland Trucks, which is equipped with technology to keep its emissions low.

Cabinet member for neighbourhoods and street scene, Coun Peter Mullineaux, said: “This is a great investment for the future and will enable us to continue keeping the borough clean and green.”
