An eagle-eyed resident appears to have caught two Stevenage Borough Council workers sleeping on the job.

Steve Berkelmans snapped the workers apparently napping instead of working in Ripon Road, Stevenage.

He said: “This sort of behaviour from council staff all around the town is not uncommon at all. I work in the town and am out and about in it a lot.

“I’ve lived in Stevenage for 44 years and have seen the standards drop year on year to the point I look around now and think what a shabby-looking town we now live in and, when I see the council doing what they are doing, or not in this case, it’s no surprise to me how it now is.”

A council spokesman said: “We have spoken to the members of staff in the pictures and they were on official breaks at the time.
