RESIDENTS in Tuffley are unhappy grass outside their homes has not been picked up after it was recently cut.
ANGER has spread amid people in Tuffley that grass outside their homes has not been picked up after it was cut.
Retired engineer Charles Ford, of Silver Close, said the collection needed to be sorted out as he was trailing grass into his home.
"It is an absolute mess," he said. "Residents are not happy at all because the cut grass is spreading across the walkways and it is not nice for those who want to be enjoying their green spaces.
"They should not have left it in that state and instead collect it up. It is green at the moment but eventually it will turn brown and look like cow pats."

The 72-year-old added: "They have to do something about it."
"All that grass should be picked up and used as composting, which is something the council is always encouraging us to do."
A Gloucester City Council spokesman said their normal policy is to cut and drop the grass, which usually means the leftover cuttings usually seep back into the ground.
"However, this year the weather has not been kind to the grass cutting and we have all sorts of problems which means we have not been able to get around as frequently," he said.
"This has meant the grass has grown longer and because of the wet weather it is clumping more and looking unsightly.
"We will pop along to Tuffley and assess the situation.
"Now that the weather has been finer in recent weeks, we may be able to fit in one last cut before the end of the season."
