Residents in Bury Park have received fake letters about bins being left out on pavements.

The letters claim to be from a ‘Steve Collins’ at Luton Borough Council but a council spokesperson said they are fake.

The letters are photocopied, sent in handwritten envelopes and not on council-headed paper.

A Council spokesman said: “While we do ask that residents remove their bins from pavements after being emptied, residents receiving this particular letter should be assured that it has not been sent by Luton Borough Council and should be ignored. The Council’s street services enforcement team does not employ a ‘Steve Collins’ and has begun an immediate investigation.”

So far, the Council is aware of a number of the letters being received in Avondale Road and Ash Road.
