Couple forced off farm so it can be flooded for breeding birds, under EU rules.
A couple have been forced off the land they have farmed for 30 years and planned to pass on to their sons so it can be flooded for breeding birds under EU laws.
Former Army officer Kenneth Hicks said he and his wife Deidre have been told they must leave the 60-acre estate by Eurocrats who put the “rights of birds above humans”.
These people are not tenants. They own the land fair and square.
