Heath Hayes graveyard 'inaccessible' to mourners

Families of people buried at a Cannock graveyard have had to take over the site's maintenance themselves because the tombstones have become hidden by grass.

The grass at St John's Church in Heath Hayes has grown taller than the memorials.

Cannock Chase District Council said it would take over the responsibility for the site in August.
