image for Pensioners New Craze "Free-Gardening" Causing Injuries
Owner claims this used to be an Oak Tree

A new craze is sweeping Britain, causing accident units across the U.K serious concerns as pensioners flood in with injuries such as "severely scratched hands" and "twisted shoulders".

The new craze christened "free-gardening" by Britain's thrill-seeking over 60's involves gardening at a crazy pace without stopping, sometimes even crossing boundaries such as your neighbours wall or a communal patch of grass.

Pensioner Ada Millet,today nursing a bandaged wrist, commented," I just decided to prune a couple of shrubs, next thing the adrenaline was pumping and my laveteria was just a stump."

Free-gardening victim, Freda Captives, using a false name to remain anonymous, claimed that "free-gardening" neighbours had cut back her over-hanging willow in a crazed spree over the weekend, involving two pensioners and lasting seven minutes.

"They were like maniacs," she sobbed, "It was like a scene from 28 Days Later. My tree has been brutalised."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
