OVERGROWN grass at Keith's cemeteries has been cut back this week after complaints from locals.

Grass cutting had been delayed due to coronavirus restrictions but has now resumed.

Many locals had raised concerns with Moray's SNP MSP Richard Lochhead, who brought the issue up with Moray Council.

The council confirmed the grass would be cut at both of the town's cemeteries this week, and that has now happened.

Mr Lochhead said: "Constituents who had been visiting the cemetery had contacted my office to share their concerns about the lack of grass cutting.

"After contacting senior officers in the Moray Council, I received a helpful update to let me know that grass cutting had been delayed as a result of coronavirus and the restrictions on work.

"The grass being cut will no doubt be welcomed by those who visit the cemetery regularly."
