Ex-RBS boss Goodwin to finally sort out his hedges

Hedge

Former RBS CEO Fred Goodwin has been told to cut down an 20ft hedge at his Scottish mansion that has 'overpowered' his neighbours' gardens.

The Daily Telegraph reports that the ex-banker kept the giant leylandii hedge after buying the £3.5m property in 2010, as it blocked views of the back of his home.

The move angered his neighbours, who claimed the vegetation prevents light from reaching their gardens and spoils their enjoyment of their properties.

On Friday, after a four-year row, Edinburgh City Council sided with the homeowners, who took action under the High Hedges (Scotland) Act 2013 and ordered Goodwin to cut it back.
