HEDGES have been removed from Box Road in Cam as work continues on a housing development there.

Bovis Homes workmen ripped out the hedges today (Wednesday), which many local residents taking to Facebook to complain about losing the greenery.

The developer was criticised back in March for putting nets on the hedges, with residents saying that wildlife could be harmed.

As a result, Bovis Homes then removed the nets later that month.

Bovis is building more than 100 homes at the Box Road development.
