A LITTER pick planned for tomorrow in Taunton has been cancelled.

The event, organised by the County Gazette and Taunton Deane MP Rebecca Pow, has been called off due to the bad weather.

It was set to take place from 11.30am at the Priory Bridge Road bridge as part of the Great British Spring Clean.

But County Gazette editor Paul Jones said conditions just would not be safe for participants.

"It's with a heavy heart we cancelled the litter pick as we were keen to do our bit, but it just isn't possible with things they are," he said.

"We wouldn't want anyone to risk coming out in such poor weather.

"Hopefully we can reschedule for the coming weeks."
