freesheet mountain

"London Underground passengers are discarding nine and a half tonnes of freesheets a day on three of the tube network's busiest lines, it emerged yesterday.

Commuters on the Northern, Piccadilly and Jubilee lines are cluttering carriages with copies of Metro, thelondonpaper and London Lite, according to the contractor in charge of maintaining the lines. Tube Lines said the amount of waste paper has tripled since Associated Newspapers, publisher of London Lite, and News International, owner of thelondonpaper, launched a freebie battle for London readers."

this is just wrong. im not one for knee jerk reactions but i think these papers should go. no-one really wants them, no-one would miss them.
