  • Description

    Authorities in Glasgow, Scotland, are calling for troops to come and save their city from growing mountains of garbage. A nine-week strike by refusemen has left the city choked by 50,000 tone of rat-infested rubbish.

    Drivers from the city's refuse collection department have just voted to continue their unofficial wage strike, despite appeals from union leaders for a return to work. It's been reported that the men have threatened not to return until "bodies are lying in the streets".

    Fearing the threat to health, leaders of Glasgow Corporation announced yesterday (March 10) that they were on the verge of requesting the government to send in troops to clear the rubbish.
