Deer spotted on Weavering Heath last night

Thursday 2nd April 2020

DEER has been spotted on Weavering Heath.

The animal, believed to be a roe, was seen on the open space at 8pm last night.

The heath is in the process of being granted village green status which would prevent development on the land.

A Grove Green resident said: "Someone saw it last night just as it was getting dark and, as soon as it was disturbed, it ran off. We can only surmise that because the roads are so quiet, it drifted onto the heath.

"It's in the nature of deer to roam and they do pop up in the oddest of places."
