This July was supposed to have seen an end to ridiculous bin rules. Eric Pickles and the might of central government were supposed to have stamped out barmy council rules over how long you could leave the bin out - or slapping you with a fine for putting too much into your wheelie bin.

But Southampton Council has flown in the face of what seemed like an eminently sensible rule, and announced plans to bring in a raft of new bin laws.
