Not in the pink

Work is expected to start today to repaint a cottage near Exeter that a local council has deemed to be too pink. Teignbridge Council says Ann Kennedy's home in Kennford is against planning laws.

The Kennedys were given three years to repaint the Grade II listed property. A team of painters will repaint it with a darker shade of pink later today.

A woman in Devon has been told her house could be too pink.

Ann Kennedy from Kennford near Exeter has been threatened with legal action by Teignbridge District Council after repainting her home 2 years ago.

She says the colour was matched to the same pink that had been used for at least 15 years.
