A parent has branded a council’s action as “diabolical” after workers removed a young boy’s tree house.
Julie Howard, 55, said her step son aged 12 spent his birthday money to buy tools to build the tree house in London Road, Vange.In his mother's garden?
Well, no. Not exactly.
The angry parent said: “We were told it had to be removed for health and safety reasons.
“I told them that young people have nothing else to do as we have no parks or youth clubs about.”Really?
Liar, liar, pants on fire...
“When the council workers came down on Wednesday my step son sat in the tree house in protest.
“The council worker was even trying to get him down by telling him that his dad has McDonald’s food for him.”And what were you doing? Taking selfies?
“They then came round to our house to speak with us about the health and safety dangers.
“It is an eyesore but it is not hurting anyone.
“I think what the council has done is diabolical.
“We were told that if my son fell from the tree we would be liable for it.”Yes. Because you're an incompetent who shouldn't be in charge of a goldfish, never mind a child.
