A RUBERY councillor has made an urgent call for people to stop using Lickey Hills Golf Course as a race track.

Bromsgrove District Councillor Gray said: “Whoever is causing this anguish needs to stop. Have some respect.

“Lots of people enjoy playing golf here because it is a public space, and the grounds take a lot of hard work to maintain for your enjoyment.”

West Mercia Police have confirmed reports of criminal damage have been made and officers are due to meet with management of the course to discuss ways of preventing further issues.
