A mystery do-gooder known as the phantom weed clearer who cleared his local area after the council left it over grown has revealed his identity – as an 88-year-old pensioner.

Stephen Scaife took to clearing the streets of weeds in his local area after the cash strapped council failed to take action. On his regular walk to the post office Stephen grew tired of the pavements being broken up by weeds, and was plagued by the unsightly plants growing around road furniture. Initially out of annoyance Stephen began clearing the weeds, but found he couldn’t stop, and has now begun clearing all the weeds from his local roads, courtyards and community areas.
