Eastwood Town Council U-turn over allotment ban


A Nottinghamshire council has reversed its decision to evict a pensioner from his allotment because of his ill-health.

Arthur Martin, from Eastwood, was given notice to leave his plot by Eastwood Town Council.

The authority changed its mind after officials met with protesters who had argued the move could lead to discrimination against people with physical disabilities who rent allotments.
