Three people had eaten fast food takeaways the previous evening but left the cartons in the Tintab shelter before making their way home.
That's despite there being a litter bin - provided by the council - just a few yards away.
In case you were wondering, we checked and these boxes are not too large to go through the opening in the metal container.
This black bin appears to be a new one; the large green-painted one has gone.
New bin - age old problem!
Sadly, the message Keep Brigg Tidy seems to have fallen on deaf ears on this occasion.
