The Daily Mirror reports that Leicestershire County Council have spent £6,000 on fitting Sat-Navs to fourteen lawnmowers because they get lost in the long grass. Interactive maps will also help check whether the grass has been cut or not. A spokesman from the National Allotment Society called it ‘bonkers’ and ‘a waste of money’ saying:
“All it takes is for someone to look out the window and see if the grass needs cutting, you don’t need a satellite to tell you.
