"It is appreciated that even one day of the area being closed will be disruptive, but I hope everyone can recognise it is for a good cause which will not start until 10am and be over by 3pm."

Local war councillor Mair Manuel said: "I am delighted that we are now able to start the clean-up of Pilton Street and The Rock as a direct response to the comments received at the consultation event. It would be great to see as many residents as possible on the day.
