Council sees sense

A 79-year-old woman has been permitted to tend her village's flower beds again after she was told to stop gardening due to health and safety rules.

Wiltshire County Council said June Turnbull from Urchfont, near Devizes would have to put up warning signs and be supervised when tending the blooms.

The parish and county councils have now agreed she can carry on, as long as she wears a fluorescent jacket.

Atleast the council has seen a bit of sense. The council was extremely stupid when they over reacted to this incident. She was doing no harm and shouldn’t have been stopped in the first place.
