SIR – Driving between Upton and Tewkesbury last week, between the Welland Road junction and Longdon, I had to pass the riders and audience of a hunt. The grass verges were largely churned up by vehicles and hooves and one side of the road covered in mud. I found this inconsiderate and anti-social. Roads and grass verges are for everyone to use and admire and are maintained by the tax-payer. If a farmer had made this much mess he would have been told by Highways to clear it up.
