Paddling Pool Ban
Here is some more water related Nanny nonsense for you!
Last month Nanny's chums in New Forest District Council ordered Richard Cole from Pennington to remove an inflated paddling pool from a communal courtyard in a block of flats, on health and safety grounds.
Mr Cole was told by the council that someone walking through the courtyard in front of the flats could trip over the pool and fall into the water.
New Forest District Council said:
"Inflatable swimming pools are not suitable for any council-owned communal areas on health and safety grounds."
Petty aren't they?
