couldn't do anything. They did get called on a few occasions and told
the council ranger there was nothing they could do, it's a council
bylaw not a law the police can enforce. Obviously I'm no lawer but I
also wonder if local council ranger have any legal right to take
property in cases like this. I'd very much doubt it, they certainly
couldn't take it permenantly that would be theft plain and simple.
