Hidden Stones On Grass Verges Could Get Residents In Hot Water

If you place rocks on the verge outside your home to keep vehicles off the grass, you could end up in a legal battle.

Motcombe Parish Council has discussed a recent incident where a driver pulled over to let through oncoming traffic near the school. He ran over large rocks hidden by the long grass.

Councillors heard that householders placing stones could be liable for costs incurred. But Cllr Mandy Mason says she wants to find out what is allowed so solutions can be identified.
