81-Year Old Grandma Given Anti-Social Behaviour Notice For Wearing A Bikini In Her Own Garden

An 81-year-old grandmother was given a "nuisance notice" for wearing a bikini in her own garden.

Pensioner Kay Crane, a former model, was threatened with legal action by a town hall after being given a new-style 'Asbo' (anti-social behaviour notice) to prevent her from wearing her two-piece swimsuit on the property.

Ms Crane, from Stockport, Greater Manchester, was told not to wear her bikini in view of a neighbouring nursery, according to a freedom of information request.

Ms Crane said: "I felt bullied, intimidated and steamrollered."

It was one of more than 20,000 new-style Asbos, or "nuisance notices" handed out by cash-strapped councils to homeowners accused of minor 'anti-social' behaviour such as keeping chickens, feeding birds or failing to trim overgrown gardens.
