Pensioner claims his privacy has been invaded by neighbours children bouncing on

Mr Croucher said that when he approached his neighbours over the issue, they told him “it is my garden and we can do what we like”.He now feels “uncomfortable” tending to the memorial dedicated to his sister which is placed by the fence near the trampoline.Mr Croucher, along with his ex-partner, live in the four-bedroom property on Albert Road, which is managed by Fortis Living.He added: “We have lived here for 36 years and have brought up our five children in this house.”We are too old to move out and why should we when we have been here all these years?” He said: “When the family first bought the trampoline last year, they placed it in the middle of their garden. But on Sunday, they moved the trampoline closer to my fence. Now whenever the kids use it their heads bob up and can peer straight into my windows.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

A furious pensioner is claiming his privacy is being invaded by the family next door whose children are able to look through his windows when bouncing on their trampoline.Derrick Croucher, who lives in Droitwich, Worcestershire, said he approached his neighbours over the issue but they refused to move the trampoline away from the fence dividing his and their gardens.The 71-year-old claims the youngsters can see into his garden and home when they bounce up and down outside.“I asked for their consideration on my privacy as it is upsetting and affecting our lives. It means we cannot go in the garden without being watched – it invades our privacy,” Mr Croucher said.He added: “I want the kids to play, but my argument is why has the trampoline got to be so close to my fence where it could cause damage? It is my fence, I want to make sure it doesn’t break. It also gives them an opportunity to see over into my garden and look through my windows into my house.”The father-of-five said the family originally placed the trampoline in the middle of their garden, but became upset by their decision to move it closer to his fence on February 17.
