It never ceases to amaze me what dirty creatures human beings are. I have stopped in a couple of lay-bys lately and am quite disgusted by the type and amount of litter discarded , especially when "there is a bin just over there".

The situation is the same in towns and cities and I'm at a loss as to thee mentality of people who consciously throw their litter on the ground without a care in the world.

Did I read that correctly? Someone from Workington calling Carlisle dirty? Three words for you, POT, KETTLE, BLACK.

Why can't the people take a bit of pride in there city, if there were no bins, then the answer is simple. Put a few more bins out for the rubbish.

I entirely agree with Mr. Evans,it is the responsibility of parents to instil respect in their children. Many parents do this and schools can and do reinforce, but there is a significant yet increasing minority who think it is someone else's job to bring up their children.

Michael Owen (22 Nov) : instead of putting the burden onto teachers who already have a very full curriculum to teach, how about parents taking some responsibility for their children for a change?

It's attitudes like yours that got us into this mess in the first place. There are too many people who leave parental responsibility to someone else, a direct consequence of the PC brigade.

Full marks to the new council for taking a tough stance on litter louts, if Carlisle is to attract visitors to the city it does need to be clean and tidy, to the benefit of all.Could I suggest that all schools in the county as well as the city spend five minutes per week explaining the benefits of "Clean Streets" for all of us, perhaps a few posters in schools might help.

'E'- Carlisle untidy and dirty!You've got to be kidding! Workington,(as is the whole of West Cumbria) is the dirtiest,most depressing place i've ever visited.In fact,if it wasn't for Sellafield,you might as well close it down!

whilst walking down Warwick Rd last year a young couple were walking towards me, i saw something drop out of her handbag & was just about to tell her when she threw 3 more empty cigarette packets on the floor, there was a bin 2 yards away, me & a man walking just behind me stopped & stared in disbelief, when he made a comment to me they turned round and made a rude gesture, god help us all, I have drummed into my kids as my parents did to me that you do not under any circumstances drop litter, what was this woman taught by her parents I dread to think
