Traffic cones, number plates and a machete - just three of the odd items found when the city’s drainage system was cleaned.
Police appeal for help to find man missing from Milton Keynes
The items caused blockages inside the drains. Other items found included syringe needles, which have to be disposed of by specialist crews.
Items that may have been used as weapons are handed over to the police.
Items found included:
Kitchen knives and a machete
Cement and paint
Yellow lockable bollard
Upside down traffic cones
The three year programme to clean the gullies began in June this year and will include each area across the borough until 2019.
The work will be carried out by the council’s highway service provider Ringway using specialist gully cleaning vehicles.
