A walkway in Westhoughton has become so overgrown that a councillor has said he will cut it back himself if the council does not act quickly.

The walkway between Gorsey Hey and Oxlea Grove and The Crescent has been neglected by Bolton Council for weeks.

Councillor David Wilkinson has asked for urgent action to get the overgrowth cut back, but was initially warned that there might be a delay to completing the work.

He has since been promised by Bolton Council that they will carry out the work “without delay”.

David said: “The walkway looks a mess and it is restricting people’s ability to get down there, especially with a buggy.

“If it isn’t done soon, I will go and do it myself.”
