Retrieving Lost Balls + Pets from Neighbour's Gardens Legalised in Belgium

In the News

I think the belgian government have been watching too much of the cadburys advert

You know, the one , where all the stuff keeps going over the neighbours fence , the last bit the ball hits the greenhouse and mr thompson is starting to get annoyed

Then it cuts from winter to summer and hes in the garden, and a bar of cadburys flies over the fence

'' you can keep that one Mr thompson '' one of the lads shouts

Aw nice

Oh if only that happened in reality

Yes he might get something brown over his fence , but it definitely wouldn't be a bar of cadburys

Picture the real life scenario if the law came to the UK , after hours of the ball being kicked against Mr thompsons fence he grabs it when it comes over

''Oi you miserable old g@t , give us our ball back !'' shouts one of the lads

Mr thompson , ''if it comes over one more time you ****** i will put a knife in it !!!!''

Fifteen mins later over it comes again

Mr Thompson ''That's it , i warned you lot ''

He punctures the ball and puts it in the dustbin

Cut to later that night Mr Thompson goes to the local for a well earned pint after spending all day in the garden

The lads are waiting for him to go and as soon as are over the fence

When Mr Thompson comes back he finds his garden shed open and all his tools gone , including the mower

He calls the police but nobody turns up , as they do

A week later the lads are sporting new trainers and a smile on their faces

When one of the neighbours tells Mr Thompson she saw the boys climbing over his fence he thinks, '' Thats it, i've got them''

So he is off down the police station with the info

The police come and interview the boys and they admit climbing over the fence, but only to get their ball back which they found Mr thompson had criminally damaged but know nothing about a break in

The boys, who know the law off by hand, quote to the police the new law, section 7 of the trespassing act , they are entitled to go on private property to retrieve their ball if the neighbour is out

The police confirm this to Mr Thompson and tell him he hasnt a leg to stand on , and he must pay the boys for a new ball

The moral of the story , there may be more than a glass and a half of milk in every bar, but while you are in the bar some thieving @cumbags will be having you over 😏

That doesn't seem right to me. I don't think people should be able to go onto another person's property without their permission.

You will have burglars carrying balls around just in case they are caught in the garden.
