Peckish rugby fans won't pick up their litter in Twickenham
Rugby fans with the munchies have caused mayhew in Twickenham.
Richmond council says taxpayers’ money is being spent removing Peperami wrappers from the streets of Twickenham during the World Cup.
The Council has written to Jack Links – owner of the pork sausage snack – following reports thousands of wrappers being discarded on the floor in the Twickenham
Station area and the stadium.
The samples are being handed out to those en-route to the games on match days.
It is estimated the clear up is costing up to £1,000 per match.
The Council has now written to both Jack Links and Bugle to request that they take more responsibility for the waste caused by their promotion. posted by Radio Jackie News Team @ 9:45 am

Residents in #Tolworth implore Kingston Council to take action on fly-tippers
People living in a part of Tolworth say they are at their wits' end after fly-tippers have once again ruined a mass clean up of Broadoaks.
It took less than three days after the clean up earlier this year before rubbish including soiled nappies, soiled mattresses, clothes and sofas began to line the route again.
Kingston Council claims because the land is private, it can't organise a clear up, yet a council waste picker was spotted litter picking this morning.
Business owners say they would be happy to pay into a kitty if it meant the council could organise a litter picking squad, but their pleas have gone unanswered.
Despite council signs saying "fly-tippers will be prosecuted," a spokesman told us it is not the council's responsibility to clean the street.
A resident, who asked not to be named, told Jackie News " we pay some of the highest council tax rates in the country, yet Kingston cannot help us with a simple monthly clean up, or send officers out to speak to the businesses who continually refuse to clear their part of Broadoaks. We are helpless, and after 10 years, we don't see the situation changing. How can this sort of thing happen in 2015?"

Royal Parks’ issues advice during deer rutting season
The Royal Parks is advising dog walkers to exercise their pets outside Richmond and Bushy Parks during rutting season, which continues through October and November.
Red stags and fallow bucks compete for females during the breeding season.
The large males roar, bark and clash antlers in an attempt to fight off rivals and attract as many females as possible.
Male deer are more likely to attack dogs at this time of year, as the stags and bucks can be highly aggressive.
Deer can feel threatened by dogs, even from a long distance and when the dog is not behaving in a provocative manner.
If visitors choose not to follow this advice, they should ensure dogs are on a lead at all times and consider an alternative route which follows the wall line of the park, where they are close to exit gates.
Over 600 deer roam freely through Richmond Park, with over 300 in Bushy Park.
Throughout the year, visitors are advised to:
•always keep at least 50 metres away from deer;
•never touch or feed the deer. Deer are wild animals, not pets;
•avoid getting in between two deer; and
•never photograph the deer at close range, use a long lens and consider taking photos at off peak times such as early mornings and weekdays. posted by Radio Jackie News Team @ 10:23 am

Richmond Park and North Kingston MP and #LondonMayor hopeful Zac Goldsmith speaks at the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester
Mr Goldsmith thanked his constituents for allowing him to run for Mayor, after a ballot in Richmond Park revealed overwhelming support for the move.
He also said Labour's search for a Mayoral candidate, which resulted in Tooting MP Sadiq Khan being selected, was "vicious" and in contrast, the Conservative campaign was "civilised."
Mr Goldsmith backed the Chancellor's move yesterday to hand more power to local authorities. Under the “devolution revolution”, councils will be able to keep the money they raise, rather than send it on to London for redistribution.
The green issue, one which Mr Goldsmith is an avid supporter of, also came under the spotlight. The MP said we have to get to grips with pollution. He said the sheer pace of change means we have to work to enhance and protect our green spaces.
