Retired Army captain defends parking space outside his house with a cannon

A retired Army captain has become so fed up with people parking outside his house that he's started protecting it with a cannon.

Paul Davis, 67, has put the weaponry on his driveway, pointing towards the street outside his home in Charlton, south east London.

Beside it, beneath a World War Two helmet, is a sign warning drivers: "Don't even think of parking here." He said: "I just put it there to stop people parking at the front of the house. No one parks there now. Not if they've got any sense."

He added: "The neighbours think I'm eccentric." However, the cannon, which includes a set of cannonballs, won't be blasting away cars any time soon as it is actually made of solid oak.
