Ann Slator was baffled after her garden hedge was misappropriated again

Kevin Dobson and Ann Slator spent about £500 equipment a line of 50 young laurel bushes in April to blot out route noise and improve their privacy. 

But thieves struck and uprooted the party hedge while the couple, both 58, watched TV. 

The same responsibility happened last year, when 35 young laurel works were stolen in September, five months after they were assigned.

“I keep wondering why our one was targeted.” 

Ann added: “I withstand a sense of incredulity. We don’t live on a quiet road, it’s one of the major roads on the resources.” 

The couple have reported the latest incident to police, who are still through with a fine-tooth comb the thieves who struck last year.
