Council chiefs have come under fire after they allegedly fixed a tall CCTV camera pole on an Isle beauty spot which is protected from development by The Queen.

Workmen caused fury when they placed the 20ft high pole on Kings Head Croft, a public green owned by Epworth Town Council and allegedly protected by the sovereign.

North Lincolnshire Council leader Liz Redfern has herself branded the move “daft” and has ordered that the pole is re-sited to a more suitable place.
