The previous owner of the house next to us fitted metal spikes on the boundary wall, but never consulted us. Our washing lines have been on the same wall long before the spikes. When the wind blows our clothes get caught up in the spikes getting damaged. I removed some of the spikes after the owner sold the home, but now the new owner has laid a charge of theft at the Police against me. Can this be done? The new owner has also cut all my washing lines. What can I do?
