    Saw a small snippet of news about a man who was fined £7368 over home bonfires which made neighbours’ lives a misery, . He continued to burn wood waste in defiance of a council nuisance abatement notice issued after a previous bonfire burned for days. I thought this snippet might give Jane @northernteacher some hope that there is recourse if her neighbour becomes too unbearable.

    • Sheila, many thanks for that bit of news – it does give me hope. We wrote to the council yesterday as there was a fire smouldering all day from the night before and it was unsupervised. I know that because I went round there and they were all out.
