I am overrun with ants

Have your say

I rang the council to report that I was overrun with ants.

I was told it would cost me £45 for someone to come out. I was shocked at this.

I explained to the lady that I was a pensioner living on my own, but she insisted that it would still cost me.

I said the Government tells me I have to live on £150 per week and the council wants £45 of that for a cure for ants.

If I paid that and all my outgoings there would not be much left.

Where is the justification in that?
