You can seek an injunction as it is a nuisance.You need to write and ask that they trim it and if they refuse say you will go to Court.
You would need to complete form N208:

And N16a:
http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n016a-eng.pdf
The court will list the matter for hearing and decide whether to grant an injunction. If the Court grants this and they refuse to do anything then that is contempt of Court for which they can be warned, fined or sent to prison.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
