Road skips issue raised

CONCERNS have been voiced by Ponteland councillors about traffic issues caused by skips being left on some of the area’s well-used roads for considerable periods of time.

Coun Richard Dodd said a skip has been in the same place for about half a year and there is even one on the A696. Coun Robin Ramsay added that a licence is needed for them, so the county council can take action if required.
