TWO young football teams have shown they love where they live with a tidy up in Ilkeston.

Stanton Ilkeston under-13s girls and under-nines boys grabbed binbags outside McDonalds for the event earlier this month.

Danielle Hayes from the Bath Street restaurant, which sponsors the team, said: “They did an excellent job filling several large litter bags over the course of the morning and showed great pride helping to clean up their local environment.”

The youngsters were rewarded with a meal after the clean-up.
