Lewes mayor Dr Michael Turner welcomed the street cleaners from Lewes District Council to the Town Hall for a full English breakfast following their night of cleaning up after Lewes Bonfire.

He thanked the street cleaners for their often unnoticed efforts and several councillors showed their appreciation by serving tea and coffee.

A spokesperson for the Lewes Town Council said: “All the hard work they put in on the streets of a litter-strewn town after Bonfire Night is much appreciated especially when the townspeople wake up to a clean and rubbish free town as though everything has magically disappeared overnight.”
