LAWNMOWERS built on the outskirts of Ashbourne are being used to create the perfect football pitch for the 2014 Fifa World Cup.

The mowers, which are made in Kirk Langley by historic manufacturing firm Dennis, will be used by groundsmen tending to pitches at 12 stadia in Brazil throughout the tournament, as well as at the teams’ training facilities.
