    The pranks, which stemmed from a parking dispute between the pair, began on October 2019 and continued until April 2021.

    At a previous hearing, prosecutor Nicole Bridgman said: ‘The complainant said he had been parking his car in a particular place for two years but the defendant was said to have told him: ‘Do not f****** park here again, you cannot park here.

    ‘On another occasion when the complainant asked the defendant to move debris from the drive, he pushed a pile of leaves and rocks in front of his car.

    ‘When family members were staying at the complainant’s property, both of their cars were damaged. The complainant suspects the defendant was responsible for that but there is nothing to prove it.

    ‘In one incident the defendant put his clenched fist underneath the complainants chin and said he could smell his breath and words were exchanged.

    '다음날, in a spiteful act of retaliation, the defendant posted through the letterbox a toothbrush and toothpaste to mock the complainant further.

    ‘The complainant later installed CCTV in April 2020 which the defendant then covered up with plastic. The complainant said it cost £500 to fix.

    ‘There was damage to the complainant’s fence, the police were called and officers asked both parties to stay away from each other. The defendant called the complainant a f*****g w*****.

    ‘There is CCTV footage to show the defendant moving the bin before it was emptied. This caused the complainant harassment and distress.

    ‘There is also an allegation that the defendant put his washing machine on in the early hours of the morning to make noise.

    Speaking in mitigation, defence lawyer Sam Fixter told the court: ‘It is an assumption his car was damaged by this defendant. He does not know who it was and, in all due respect, it is not the best of housing estates and things happen.

    ‘He moved the wheelie bins onto a separate area of grassland.

    ‘It started with an argument over a parking space. It’s probably something that happens a lot in blocks of flatspeople park somewhere and notes get left on windscreens. It happens.

    ‘The note was strongly worded and he apologised the next day but there was then an argument over the note and then further things, including leaving the toothpaste on Mr Jonesdoorstep.

    ‘It was a long time ago and there have been no issues with anybody else.

    ‘He is a landscaper by trade so he assists his neighbours with maintaining the area. So it seems to have been a clash of personalities.
