Shocking protests against allotments

Yes really! Protests against the use of green fields as allotments!

A LAST-ditch protest has been made by residents in a Sheffield suburb opposed to dozens of new allotments on a green field site.

Sheffield Council has started work to create around 50 allotments on land off Mickley Lane, Totley, in response to a shortage of plots and a growing number of people who want to grow their own fruit and vegetables.

But people living nearby and disabled residents at the Mickley Hall home, run by the Leonard Cheshire Foundation, argue the development will bring extra traffic and spoil the view.
