London, July 15 (ANI): A 61-year-old granny was threatened with an anti-social behaviour order unless she removed her tomato plants.

Linda Ware from Neath, South Wales had grown two tomato plants outside her council flat to brighten up the foyer, but estate chief David Rouse paid her a visit after a neighbour complained they were making her ill.

"He said insecticides and sprays were affecting other people's health - but I don't use them," the Sun quoted her as saying.

"He then said they were a fire risk. I removed them but he gave me a slip saying, 'You have been visited concerning your anti-social behaviour'. I was flabbergasted," she added.

Neath Port Talbot council again sent her a letter warning that officials would move the plants if she didn't.

Earlier, a petty housing boss made her remove other pot plants, claiming they could self-combust.

However, divorced Linda insists that she was being victimised for campaigning about local problems.

She added: "There are much bigger issues to tackle."

A council spokesman said: "Keeping foyers clear is a key fire safety precaution."

Local councillor Tony Wyn-Jones said: "Alcohol-related anti-social problems are far more serious." (ANI)
