A COUNCIL has erected a metal barrier outside a driveway in a bizarre planning row over an electric car charger.

Adam Storey came home from work to find the barrier put directly outside his home which has left him unable to drive up to his charger.

The only way he can now recharge his car is by parking on the grass verge, leaving the electric cable draped across the pavement.

Hull City Council said the 26-year-old did not have planning permission for the electric charging portal.
