Council tenants at a block of flats in Gosport have been banned from having welcome mats outside their doors because they are health and safety hazard. The tenants have been ordered to remove the mats and have been threatened with court action and even eviction if they fail to comply with the demand. It appears the problem is that people could trip on the mats if they need to leave in an emergency. Council officers will be returning to the block of flats within a month to check all traces of the offending items have been removed. It strikes me that there might be more important issues for councils to worry about than a few door mats but maybe I am missing the point?
