BRAINTREE Council has agreed to address concerns raised about the condition of a pond in a Silver End park.

Paige Wicks, 19, of Francis Way, said the pond in Silver End Memorial Gardens has been neglected.

She said: “It is overgrown, it is full of rubbish, leaves and conkers. It used to be really clear and you could see fish and newts and now it is just horrible."
