Colourful beach hut clashes with council

The owner of a beach hut on Hove seafront has angered council bosses after giving it a colourful makeover.

Jeff Allen says he commissioned a friend to paint the hut for him and was shocked when he saw its bold design.

'So many people love it, but this should never have happened. It has certainly ruffled a few feathers,' he told the BBC.

Brighton and Hove Council's strict rules require beach huts to be painted 'iceplant green' and has told Mr Allen he has two weeks to repaint his beach hut sticking to their 'clear terms and conditions'. Mr Allen has promised to do so.
