I usually walk to work from SE1 to WC1. The dirtiest part of the journey is actually one of the most high profile: the stairs leading from the East side of Waterloo Bridge
down to the South bank by the National Theatre
They are covered in grafitti (some very good and Banksy quality - most just sad tags by insecure needle dicks) and the steps have clearly not been cleaned since before NYE as there are many party poppers and broken beer bottles - even I have cleaned up since the New Year orgy.
My query is who has responsibility for clearing them? I suspect they may fall between lots of different possibilities - Lambeth/South bank/Pool of London even (does it come up this far)? Does anyone know so that I can request a blitz?
