Letter: A wheelie daft idea

From Mr Brian Simpson

Sir: The councillors of Wakefield ("Wheelie-bins dump pensioners in hospital", 8 December) are clearly one liquorice stick short of a Pontefract cake.

What on earth were they up to, suggesting people should clean the insides of their wheelie-bins? I have not seen anything so daft since those advertisements encouraging people to disinfect their S-bends.

No wonder the confused pensioners have been toppling in.

Yours sincerely,

Brian Simpson
