A Lincolnshire beauty spot is being cleared of undergrowth after residents complained it was being used for sex.
People said the “dogging” at Stapleford Woods, south of Lincoln, was forcing ramblers and families to avoid the area.
Lincolnshire Police said it had increased patrols of the site after the complaints.
Council officials are carrying out a day of action at the site and ex-offenders are clearing up.
Jenny Milan, from Stapleford Parish Meeting, said something needed to be done.
“I’ve been down there two or three times and it’s really not very nice.
“Our village is a beautiful village and we don’t want to accept this behaviour,” she said
