A couple accused of flooding their neighbor’s alley by watering her plants also allegedly put “clowns” on their fence, a court has heard.

Trevor Dempsey, 62, and Sandra Durdin, 58, are accused of conducting a year-long campaign of harassment against Joanne Shreeves between June 2020 and August 2021. MyLondon reports.

At an earlier hearing in December, the couple denied the charges and were due to appear in court today (11 April) but were adjourned due to Covid-related arrears.

The court described it as “messy to say the least” and heard from prosecutors that the pair had been neighbors of Ms Shreeves in The Ridgeway, Chingford, Waltham Forest for 40 years.

The couple were also accused of “putting clowns and dolls on the fence” and standing at the end of the driveway and calling Ms Shreeves “an ugly whore”, Stratford Magistrates Court heard.

They were also accused of flooding their alley, repeatedly parking in their neighbor’s driveway and posting various toys, barbed wire and black paint-covered felt on their fences.

Alongside the couple, who are both charged with non-violent harassment, Ms Durdin faces a separate criminal damage charge after she allegedly destroyed a £1,350 security camera belonging to Ms Shreeves in May 2021.

Since the dispute, the two have now relocated to Ramsgate in Kent, over 100 miles from their former home. Dempsey, who was in the dock for the brief hearing, spoke to confirm his details and tell the court he has now parted ways with Durdin.

Another hearing was scheduled for May 3.
