North Ayrshire Council's Street Scene team have received praise from the public for keeping the prom clean during the recent heatwave.

Reader Archie Burleigh contacted the 'News' to say: "Hats off to our local Street Scene boys keeping our wee toon clean.

"This is just the 4-6pm shift pickings.

"And well done to the public for using the bins."

The high temperatures look set to continue for the rest of the month, and with busy crowds using the prom, there had been calls to extend the shifts to include twilight shifts to help with the weather.

Local businesses have been reporting that people have been out later and eating and enjoying the good weather in recent weeks.
