Large blue sheet at top of SOS lay-by North bound between j39-j40 could blow into motorway and cause a accident, road workers been parked there 3 nights this week doing road sweeping etc and nobody's moved it, also it would been nice if some could pick all the litter up on the rest of banking opposite the flats we look out if our windows and it looks a mess. Thank you in advance Kind regards Darren Princes gate (FLATS)
