Local UK Council Orders 6-year-old To Stop Making Pebble Dams In A 2 Inch Deep Creek, Citing Flash Flood Danger
`We can't have people doing this sort of thing willy-nilly'

A 6-year-old boy was ordered by a local UK council to stop building pebble dams in a 2 inch deep creek because, they claim,  the pebbles could cause a "flash flood." 

The boy's father, Rob Johnson, was left stunned. "Daniel doesn't make proper dams.  It's just a few pebbles in a row that water flows around."

But the Nettleham Parish Council is sticking to their story, "
We can’t have people doing this sort of thing willy-nilly. We are very concerned about the potential consequences of ­flooding."

It seems the creek is not the only thing that runs shallow in Nettleham.
