Schoolgirl Nicol Lara Scott, 9, has received a letter from the Prime Minister after she wrote to him to complain about litter in Grantham.
Nicol, who attends Cliffedale Primary School, was prompted to write her letter to David Cameron when she saw lots of rubbish near her father’s home, off Norton Street.
On receiving the letter, she said: “I was really happy. All my friends said I would not get a reply, so I was really excited when it arrived at my mum’s house.”
Nicol said she was unhappy to see beer cans, bin bags and broken glass among the litter in the streets near her dad’s home. “It’s horrible,” she said.
Her father, Graham, said: “I am overjoyed. I never thought she would get a reply.”
Nicol says she would like to study the environment and do something about litter when she is older.
