HOW sad it was to see wild deer roaming housing estates and crossing busy roads and carriageways in Penketh and Sankey (Warrington Guardian, April 26).

It is clear their habitat is being rapidly eroded due to the massive rise in new-build housing estates and industrial units in the area, pushing these beautiful animals from the safe haven they have been accustomed to.

The council and planning really need to think what they are doing to our environment.
