LETTER: The cleaners and the corpse

We would like to share our tale with your readers. Once upon a time under a hedge in Paradise Road, just up from Summerdown Road, there was a dead fox. After a period of time there also arose an obnoxious effluvium.

Then one day, November 10 to be precise, as we were walking our dogs towards the woods we spied a gang of four road sweepers by the playing fields.

I told them about the deceased being whiffy, doubting it was anything to do with them. To our surprise the response was “Do not worry I will get a bag.” We continued with our walk and about 30 minutes later we passed the corpse location and to our joy it had gone!

Congratulations Kier upon having such helpful, polite, and cheerful employees. Now upon that stretch of road the only unpleasant odours come from vehicles.
