A COUPLE allegedly overwatered their neighbour's plants as part of their year-long campaign of harassment.
Sandra Durdin, 58, and husband Trevor Dempsey, 62, are accused of persistently flooding an alleyway belonging to Joanne Shreeves in Chingford, East London.
The pair also installed dangerous barbed wire along their garden fence and set up props and dolls to intimidate their neighbour, it is claimed.
And they are said to have put up a piece of black felt covered in colourful paint and repeatedly parked of Ms Shreeves' driveway.
Mrs Durdin is also accused of calling her neighbour an "ugly whore".
The couple, who now live in Ramsgate, Kent, appeared in court in December charged with harassment, and they will stand trial next month.
