A LOCAL councillor has blasted the Department for Infrastructure (DFI) and Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council (CC&G) for not keeping the area up to scratch in terms of grass cutting, weed and dog foul removal.

Dervock Community Association Chair Frankie Cunningham has echoed these concerns in the wake of a clean-up by villagers taking tidy up matters into their own hands.
