White van gan

A white van which has been parked on a back yard that fronts onto Holgate Road, has been removed after decaying on its stand for 13 years, as well as encroaching onto the public pavement.
A new tougher stance taken by council and police officers meant there was deadline for its removal which has been met.
(Although I’ve waited until nearer 2 weeks later before publishing on the matter.)

This was a special part of a significant amount of general work Community Protection Officers undertake.
