The News & Star rag is reporting that the cleanup at Radio One Big Weekend turned up a lot of abandoned items.
Keys, bank cards, mobiles, discarded wellies, brand new tents, sleeping bags, outdoor furniture, birth certificates and even more strange Lady Gaga’s black stairs !!
Phil Gray, neighbourhood and green spaces manager, who oversaw a team of 90 volunteer litter-pickers said “Everyone had gone – there was nothing there but this black, MDF staircase in the middle of the field. All the performers and crews had gone. It ended up in a skip.”
The city council has apparently set up a lost and found service at the Carlisle Tourist Information Centre, which still has some items left over.
Not the stairs though they were chucked !!
