Council workers have today begun work to cut back the bushes at the entrance to the town’s Central Park from Thorold Street in a bid to stop anti-social behaviour.
The works will form part of plans to stop people urinating and defecating in the park.
Boston Borough Council’s strategic director and deputy chief executive Phil Drury said: “We’re going to do some landscaping, turf areas and reseed to provide less coverage for people to engage in anti-social behaviour.”
He said work will cover two areas in particular - the entrance worked on today (Thursday) and an electrical substation to the court-side of the park where people were going behind bushes to go to the toilet.

While the Standard was at the scene workers found a needle in one of the bushes they cleared.
