Warned for sweeping

A council has apologised to an 88-year-old widow after a street cleaner told her she could be fined for sweeping leaves from her porch.

Betty Davies said the council worker had seen her sweeping the leaves and later knocked on her door in Splott, Cardiff.

Mrs Davies said she was "lost for words" when told she could be fined, but was being let off with a warning.

Cardiff Council said sorry and it would not fine people for sweeping leaves.
