Youngsters joined politicians and residents in a big tidy up around Illingworth, Halifax.

Calderdale councillors Roger Taylor and Stephen Baines helped Peter Caffrey and Andrew Tagg picking up litter around the Abbey Park estate, Cobblestones Drive, Hawthorne Way, Hazel Drive, Rose Heath, and the Illingworth Moor Methodist Church grave yard.

Several residents also took up the opportunity to clear their gardens and the tidy up group was able to fill a large skip.

Mr Tagg said he would like to thank everyone for their support - especially the local children.
