AN accidentally ‘unadopted’ planter is set to be neatened up by Sefton Council after becoming an ‘eyesore and a grot spot.’

Champion reader Hazel Gee said: “The planter at the Churchtown lights on the way into Southport is full of self-seeded buddliahs, sycamores and is an overgrown untended mess in the container - who is responsible for this ‘grot spot’ please?”

Another reader, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: “It is an ugly eyesore and needs sorting out as soon as possible!”

A spokesperson for Sefton Council said: “This planter had previously been incorrectly identified in local land plans as unadopted.

“Our teams have now corrected this error and a contractor has been requested to tidy up the shrubbery. We have ensured this planter will also now be added to our future schedules to ensure it is kept neat and tidy.”
