Threatened for feeding garden birds

A British couple have been threatened with being evicted from their home of 42 years for feeding the birds in their garden.

Eric Goleby, 74, and his disabled wife, Sally, 66, have left mixed corn outside their home in Hickling, Norfolk, for four decades.

But Victory Housing Trust, which owns and manages the social housing, ordered them to stop because of damage caused to vehicles by birds.

Eric Goleby was warned in a letter headlined “anti-social behaviour case” that if they continued to feed wildlife they could face legal action or prosecution or even be evicted.

However, a trust spokesman said the complaint from a neighbour had been investigated and the case was now closed because no problems were found.
