As sure as eggs are eggs, I was right!
Yorkshire Coast Homes (YCH) is a charity that runs a housing association for elderly people in Scarborough. YCH recently became worried over the crab apples falling onto the street where their houses were located, seemingly YCH were of the view that these represented a "trip hazard".
They complained to the council, who sent some men with choppers along, who chopped down 6 trees.
The local residents were not best pleased as, not unreasonably, they found the trees to be an attractive part of the local environment and had not been consulted.
Factoid: the trees had been there for 35 years, without there being mass carnage on the streets caused by people falling over dropped crab apples.
A bit of an "overreaction" by YCH and the council wouldn't you say?
