Council blasted for spending taxpayers' cash on giant 'Super Mario Brothers' green plant pots

A cash-strapped council has been slammed for spending taxpayers' cash on giant green plant pots which has left a town centre "looking like something from Super Mario Brothers". Walsall Council has forked out thousands of pounds on around 15 massive planters in a bid to "promote a feeling of wellbeing and safety" in the Black Country town. But residents have accused the authority of wasting public funds on a "garish eyesore" at a time they are trying to slash £29 million from their budget. *This video was filmed 13th May 2021.
