SIR - One thing that has become apparent since March is the importance of exercise and being able to get out into a green environment. It is therefore shocking to find that a footpath through one of the patches of natural environment in inner Bradford, from Bolton Road to Kings Road, has been blocked.

A large amount of foliage has been cut down today (still in the nesting season) and dumped so that access to the path is impossible.

Anyone who thinks environmental destruction is something that you see only in David Attenborough documentaries should come and have a look at this mess.

The Telegraph and Argus and its readers have been strong supporters of protecting our remaining green spaces. Let's hope that our elected members and legal experts can ensure that this footpath remains open and the loss of habitat is repaired.
