BRAKESPEARE was fascinated by the council enforcement officer who sallied forth to the rear of 34-54 Hundred Road, March, in pursuit of a pallet mountain.

Seemingly the company working from there has permission for pallets but must not store them higher than three metres. Current height, says a report to councillors, "far exceeds three metres."

It was what happened, or didn't happen, next that intrigued your diarist for, unusually, no photographs of the offending site were taken for councillors to study.

"During conservation with the owner it became clear that he has no intention of complying with verbal requests," says the enforcement officer's report.

"Normally photographs of the site would be attached, but in this case it was not considered safe for the officers to spend the time needed to take photographs in sufficient numbers and detail."

I think we get the message!
