Borough volunteers' anger over locked garden


Southwark Cathedral has locked people out of a garden that has been cared for by volunteers in the south London community for more than 40 years.

Residents arrived at All Hallows Church and Community Garden in Borough on Monday morning to find the garden gates padlocked. Members of The Save All Hallows' Campaign said they "could not believe" people had been locked out.

The cathedral said the gates would be locked "on occasion" at the chapter's discretion.
