After reporting the fire to the police I did not hear anything from them until yesterday when I received a letter in the post.
So that’s it, case closed. My son-in-law is putting me a new gate on the very front tomorrow and I thought I would get some sort of bell or chimes that goes off when the gate is opened then it should put anyone off if they are up to know good. I will get a dummy cctv when I see one and put that up high on the wall. I really hope the hedge grows back, I feel all open and exposed at the moment.
Thank you all for your comments, it really did mean a lot to me. xx
