Alarmed residents in the Brinklow area have reported that their homes are under attack - from a swarm of flies.

Matt Wright was one of the first to contact the Advertiser about the invasion. He said: “Local residents are up in arms. This health hazard has plagued the revel villages for the past 12 weeks.”

The problem is also reported to be affecting parts of Stretton under Fosse, Harborough Magna and Binley Woods.

And disgruntled residents have now taken to social media to share their frustration, with many referring to the issue as ‘flygate’.
