Police in the Staffordshire Moorlands have asked people to clean up after themselves after rubbish was left in and around a reservoir this evening.
Rubbish including disposable barbecues was left littered around Knypersley Reservoir – with some thrown into the water itself.
“Tonight has been unacceptable as officers patrolled around the Reservoir with rubbish being left everywhere and even in the water.”
On Twitter Chief Constable Gareth Morgan said: “We’ve got better things to do than pick up your rubbish.
“If you really love the countryside then respect it or stay away.”
