<br />
Volunteers who serve homeless people with hot meals cooked in their own homes have been shut down by council bureaucrats.<br />
<br />
The group of public-spirited cooks were told they had to have a food hygiene certificate before they could hand out the free food to starving people.<br />
<br />
They claim they were even threatened with prosecution by a police officer if they didn't do as they were told.<br />
<br />
The service has been run by Luke Bird and Rebecca Hobby every Monday and Friday lunchtime for the last four years in Dorchester, Dorset, with no complaints.
