A GROUP of volunteers cleaned up four grot spots in Maghull to get rid of litter and overgrown weeds.
The different locations were next to Maghull train station, Moorhey Road shops, the grass verge next to Maghull Health Centre and the passageway between A59 and Northway.
The group, which included residents as well as Maghull Town Councillors Tom Hughes and Ken Hughes, spent around eight hours in total tidying up the areas.
Cllr Hughes said: “Many residents have been in touch about spots that need attention in the area but the passageway between Northway and Morrisons was a particular concern.
“The overgrown nature had made it a hive for anti social behaviour, rotten leaves coated the steps making it slippery and glass bottles had been littered at the bottom, a serious hazard.”
He added: “I’m very pleased that our clean-up campaign has been received with much praise and support from local residents.
“As a town councillor I want to play my part and try to make Maghull a more inviting and pleasant place to live. With the continued success of our campaign myself and our volunteers will be out regularly maintaining these grot spots.
Cllr Lock said: “When I heard about the issue it obviously needed to be sorted sooner rather than later before somebody got hurt.”
