Kay Osbourne of Brinkworth Road said the region is known for being nice, but the lack of horticultural maintenance on Claybury Broadway is making the area go downhill.

“The grass is so high and full of weeds,” she told the Recorder.

“It’s a complete eyesore.

“It has been like this for weeks, they have deserted Clayhall.”

Mrs Osbourne said she has called the council and they know about the issue and everytime she passes, it fills her with annoyance.

“You want to keep the area nice, it has always been nice, why make it look like a pigsty?

“We all do our own gardens – we pay enough council tax they should maintain the grass.

A council spokeswoman said: “We cut the grass on the bank four times during the spring and autumn and the next cut is scheduled to be completed soon.”
