A cemetery has become 'overgrown' and covered in weeds - just weeks after numerous gravestones were trashed in an act of 'disgusting' vandalism.

Manchester City Council have been criticised for letting certain parts of the Southern Cemetery, off Princess Road, fall into a 'disgraceful' state, with one man even branding it 'dangerous' and 'a dump'.

Pictures taken at the graveyard, which is the largest in the UK, shows overgrown grass and weeds around headstones at the site.

However, the council has hit back, saying that staff do their 'utmost to maintain cemeteries' but takes time to manage due to the 'substantial' size of the estate.
