She said she put it up every summer to give children in the area something to do.

 She said play is supervised at all times at the gardens in Lewisham, south London.

She said: “I have written permission from parents for their children to go on it and I am insured for the children I look after.
“There have never been any accidents because mine has a net. It’s never been a problem until London and Quadrant Housing Association took over, but now they say children could hurt themselves if they bounce off on to the grass….”
