Oban is blitzing grime on the streets with a new green mean machine.

The machine is a replacement for the one that was destroyed in a council depot fire in 2016 and is being supported in a joint venture by  BID4Oban and Argyll and Bute Council to help keep the streets clean.

‘Operator Ryan Phillips is doing an amazing job,’ said BID4Oban chief executive Andrew Spence.
