Not enough land, my @rse (or his)

Naturist gardener angry over council's house plan

A naturist is claiming a council has breached his human rights after it approved plans for houses overlooking his garden. Leslie Howard, 70, put up fencing around his home in the West Yorkshire village of Steeton so he could tend to his garden in the nude. "The application for housing next to Mr Howard's property will see homes being built 30 metres from Mr Howard's house so it was considered there would be no loss of privacy within habitable rooms. "The council's planning process and procedures are compatible and balanced with the Human Rights Act and we are confident this application complies with these standards." Never mind seeing it all, I've heard it all now!
