Tiptree: Complaints over football club's foul language
11:00am Thursday 21st February 2013 in Local News
Young children in a school playground are being subjected to foul language coming
from a controversial training ground, according to disgruntled residents.
Around 150 Tiptree villagers packed out a community hall on Friday night to discuss the next step forward in their fight against the Colchester United facility.
Campaigners and MP Priti Patel hit out at the latest decision by Colchester Borough Council to allow footballers to train at the site for longer.
They accused the council of ignoring public feeling and failing to take enforcement action against the club for using the site outside of permitted hours.
But during the meeting residents also raised concerns over swearing on the Florence Park pitches in Grange Road.
