We were asked by the Police to obtain a quotation to replace the fence that Mr F destroyed which came in at £250 + VAT. The Police said that this was too higher sum for them to insist on as part of a conditional caution saying that they would only be prepared to request £100 as the fence was only a simple post and single rail type and I had erected the fence myself so had not incurred any costs for labour. They said that if I did not accept this then they would only be prepared to issue a "Standard Caution". I suggested that the £100 would be acceptable so long as Mr F also took on the task of removing the snapped off timber from the 4 no.post holes. This was agreed upon and Mr F accepted the Conditional Caution on 15 February 2015 having 6 months to comply. He happily told the PC that he would have it sorted within 2 weeks but to date has done nothing but further antagonize us by walking and driving across our property. My suggestion to the Police that a further condition should be that Mr F was not to set foot or wheel on our property was refused and all because in the background there is an alleged boundary dispute.
Mr F accepted the Conditional Caution on 15 February 2015 having 6 months to comply.
He therefore has until 15 August 2015 (4 months) to comply.
