MADRID Mayor Manuela Carmena is demanding students holding wild parties clean up the capital’s rubbish.

The reformist leader wants undergraduates to spend a few months a year sweeping the streets.

The mother-of-four has given students the third degree for piling empty bottles and rubbish around the Complutense University of Madrid at weekends.

Carmena said: “It is not bad that, for two or three months, a person is cleaning, or occasionally cleaning, the street.

“Youth events where rubbish accumulates are intolerable.”

A PSOE spokesperson has slammed the idea, saying workers should do the cleaning.
