Vandal granny

An 89-year-old grandmother has been ordered to knit sweaters for the owners of cars that she damaged.

Heidi Kohl was arrested after slashing car tyres in Rockenhausen, Germany. She said that so many cars parked in her road that residents could not find a safe place to cross. She cut the tyres on dozens of cars thinking that it would put people off parking there.

"I was fed up with the situation" she explained. Police tracked her down and she was given a fine. As she had no cash to pay she offered to knit jumpers for her victims instead. "When she's knitted the sweaters, then the matter will be over for us," said a prosecution spokesman.
