A gardener who fenced off his allotment with barbed wire after being 
targeted by thieves has been ordered to take it down  in case intruders 
scratch themselves.

Bill Malcolm erected the 3ft fence after thieves struck three times in 
just four months, stealing tools worth around 300 from his shed and 
ransacking his vegetable patch.

But Bromsgrove district council has ordered the 61-year-old to remove the 
waist-high fence on health and safety grounds.
