Residents abused in anonymous letter for not cutting their grass

POLICE are investigating after an abusive letter was sent to residents in a Worthing road – because grass had become overgrown.

The letter was sent to residents of Warren Road, on the A27, swearing at them and branding them a “disgrace” after grass had grown long near their properties.

Previously, the West Sussex County Council decided it would no longer cut the grass due to cost-saving, prompting a number of letters to the Herald on the subject, with mixed reaction.

Phil Lipscomb, who has children aged between two and eight, was one of around 20 people to receive the abusive letter, abusing residents for not cutting the grass themselves in the absence of it being done by the council.
