VAN­DAL­ISM

Warwickshire Telegraph - - NEWS -

SRMMean­while, in one of the pretty ter­raced houses on the wide street, 41-year-old dad Scott Red­ding showed the Tele­graph a photo of May­field Road taken in 1913.

In it, small trees can clearly be seen lin­ing the pave­ment – the very same trees that the coun­cil re­moved only this week.

Scott said: “There’s a tra­di­tion of trees be­ing on this street, pro­vid­ing shade as you walk down.

“With­out them, I think many of the res­i­dents wouldn’t have cho­sen to live on May­field Road at all. I’ve heard they were dis­eased, but the stumps look fine to me.

“We’ve had no ex­pla­na­tion, and we had no warn­ing, ei­ther.”

Coun­cil lead­ers have been told about the res­i­dents’ con­cerns. They have now asked of­fi­cers to brief them on the sit­u­a­tion.
