A spokesman for Milton Keynes Council has apologised after collections were missed in multiple parts of the borough yesterday.

Monday March 15th was meant to mark the restart of green bin collections after staff shortages forced contractors Serco to postpone their services.

The decision was taken after two lorry drivers died after returning positive Covid tests.
