Refreshing drink for weeds

SIR – Am I the only person offended by the state of our gutters and verges? I watch the road sweeper coming around giving the weeds a sweep, then a spray of reviving water!

Just when the drought was killing them off, along he comes to help them grow again. Does he ever get out of the cab and clear the weed in places where the lorry cannot reach? No, of course not.

Just look at Beach Road where the powers-that-be decided to build chicanes. Surely some weed killer would be better than water?

A job for young offenders?

Mrs M Coulter, Westward Ho!
