Elderly woman's neighbour describes how police were in his garden

"They didn't tell me they were going to come round the back, and I got up this morning and I looked through the window and the fence was lifted up, the panel to next door because they haven't got a gate on theirs at the back there they've only got a small one whereas I've got the taller one"

"The bird bath was knocked over and you can see where they were standing and observing and it looks like the footprints are all up there - they haven't done a lot of damage I can soon put it right"
