A battle is brewing in Yorkshire between Pocklington residents and area's council over security fencing preventing access to Primrose Wood.

Many have reacted angrily the authority's decision to stop people from walking into the popular wood from the back of the cricket club, which is host to matches across the season on Burnby Lane, but the council maintains that it is acting on behalf of members of the team's officials.

However, this has been refuted by the cricket club which has put a sign on the fencing stating "nothing to do with Pocklington Cricket Club".

The route is a favourite with dog walkers and small children as well as being a constant feature within the town for generations.

Graham Perry, mayor of the town, told the Pocklington Press: "The council's position is that we have been asked by the cricket club to block access to Primrose Wood at the rear of the cricket club to stop people illegally crossing their land."
