Overgrown plots of land in Stamford are finally being cleared after weeks of campaigning by neighbours.

People living near the plots in Casterton Road, Rockingham Road and Haddon Road were frustrated and angry at the lack of maintenance since they were bought at auction in summer last year from developer Jelson. The plots were left to grow wild, and residents even found a dead rat in the long grass.

South Kesteven District Council eventually contacted the landowner, Periathamni Selva Kumar, asking him to clear the land.

And after an initial visit on Saturday, workmen from Grantham-based maintenance firm Glendale Services turned up with heavy equipment to cut the grass this morning (Thursday).

The Mercury has so far been unable to contact Mr Kumar for an explanation on the lack of maintenance.
