Pensioner Evicted after Dog Dies

A pensioner is being evicted from an allotment for burying his dead dog on the site.

John Johnson, 69, was told to dig up the body of border collie Max last month after complaints from other tenants.

He compiled with the order from council chiefs, but has been told he still must quit the plot he has tended for a decade near his home in Blackpool.

Allotment chiefs said the burial breached his tenancy agreement.

John, who must leave by Tuesday, said: “It has come as quite a shock.”
