A set of security bollards in Thetford, Norfolk, are in the middle of a heated debate between a disabled resident and a housing association.

John Grady, a former RAF technician of 12 years, claims he is a "prisoner in his own home" after the company Flagship installed the barriers outside his specially-adapted bungalow in Bridgham.

He claims that the bollards restrict him using a footpath to get to the parking near to his house because his wheelchair is too wide to fit through.

Mr Grady said that his wife has to park on the grassed area in order for him to access his home.

Flagship, which owns, manages and provides 21,500 homes to people across East Anglia, told EDP24: "We were sorry to hear that Mr Grady’s wheelchair was too wide for the surrounding footpath. Flagship was unaware of this issue, so we will be in touch with Mr Grady to address this matter."
