SHOPKEEPER Dave Tree was bemused when he arrived to open up last Wednesday and found the entrance to his toy store sealed off by a health and safety-conscious glazier.

Mr Tree, who runs the All The Cool Stuff classic toy emporium in Fordingbridge High Street, wondered how customers would get in and out with the artfully-placed ladder, bollards and tape used by the person fitting windows in the upstairs flats.

Fortunately after a couple of days the glazier moved on to the next window along.

Mr Tree said: “It was just surreal.”
