A grieving mother has been told to remove a memorial garden she built for her son who died in a quad bike accident by a housing association.
Emma Collins, 48, made the garden on a small patch of land outside her ground floor flat in Portland, Dorset, to commemorate the death of her son Daniel who died on his 16th birthday in 2010.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
However housing association Aster Group called her on Friday to say the memorial was obstructive and described it as a 'wasteland'.
A neighbour has now started a petition, which has garnered 260 signatures, asking the organisation to let her keep the garden.

The 14 foot by six foot space is filled with flowers, gnomes, lights, and a picture of Daniel in the centre and has some of his ashes scattered there.
Ms Collins said: 'I got a phone call from a man at Aster Group and he started by saying he wanted to talk about the wasteland in front of my flat.
'He explained that because it was a communal area it needed to be clear. I was absolutely disgusted. It felt awful.
