Fred had a shred!
Long-suffering neighbours of the disgraced financier have lost patience and taken a chainsaw to part of the massive hedge at the centre of a row in an exclusive Edinburgh suburb.
Goodwin has been feuding with Colinton neighbours for more than four years over the double-layer, 25ft Leylandii hedge at his property in an area where houses can cost £3.5m ($5.78m).
A new law is due to come into force in April empowering councils to make and enforce decisions in relation to hedge disputes.
But some neighbours decided not to wait and chopped down the nearest layer of Leylandii in a bid to let light into their gardens.
One resident, who asked not to be named, confirmed: ‘Some of the residents have taken matters in their own hands and just cut them down.
‘I think they just took a chainsaw to the hedge and did it themselves, they just got fed up of waiting for a decision to be made'.
