Video: OAP wins path protest against jobsworth workmen who tarmac around her

Have your say

A great-gran told yesterday (Tue) how she won a one-woman battle against jobsworth workmen – by sitting on her zimmer frame while they laid tarmac around her.

Disabled Linda Mills, 70, refused to budge from the path after workmen refused to drop the kerb on her driveway to allow her to park outside her home. Determined Linda donned her pink slippers and grabbed a newspaper while she sat on her blue zimmer frame forcing the workmen to tarmac around her - leaving her perched on an island. After 30 minutes officials from her local council telephoned her after being told about her protest and apologised for the mix-up and agreed to carry out the work there and then.
