Cleaners have had e-snuff.

Roadsweepers who have been clearing up a litterbug's mess in a Worcestershire village have decided snuffs enough.

For during the last six years, council litter patrol officers Mr Neil Marrsays and Mr Tom Mason have collected almost six hundred empty snuff boxes from the verges at Ocle Pychard, near Malvern.

The duo have now decided to sniff out the culprit who has been getting up their noses and bring him to justice.

In their latest trawl of the hedgerows, Mr Marrsays scooped up nearly 100 of the boxes, some in collections of six or seven tied up in plastic bags.

"The culprit obviously feels a bit guilty because they are always stuffed into hedges, but Mother Nature lays them bare at this time of year," he said.

"I don't know who is doing this or why but I would like to say to them please stop. And remind them that the maximum fine for dumping litter is pounds 2,500."
