We were appalled to read your article 'Council Scrooge at the Tip' in this week's North Somerset Times. This is yet another example of local councils' obsession with health and safety, which is rapidly ruining our country. North Somerset Council seems to have no idea of common-sense and appears to live in the misguided world of political correctness. We have bought numerous second-hand items (such as children's bicycles) in excellent condition and it is a great shame if this facility is now withdrawn. With the current situation regarding recycling, North Somerset Council should be ashamed of themselves! Sheila and Brian Pike - Via e-mail
