Anyone for, er, polo?

Having backed down last year over his plans for boxing and wrestling in H&F parks, Tory cabinet member Paul Bristow has now opened up Hurlingham Park for an international polo competition.

Apart from the minority nature of this sport - not many local residents even in Fulham own the appropriate equipment! - polo requires a huge playing area, the size of approximately nine American football pitches.

Surely local residents could do better things with our parks.
