A patriotic ex-serviceman from Hull has been told to take down his beloved Union Flag because, according to neighbours -''it's an eyesore''.
Pensioner Brian Fairfield proudly hoisted the flag on a 14ft high flag pole in his back garden. But just days later he got a phone call from his his landlords at Sanctuary Housing ordering him to take it down because other residents had complained it was an eyesore that made too much noise.
