Living on the hedge

IT’S hard to be-leaf but behind this huge growth of ivy is a three-bedroom house.

It’s so hidden that the occupier has been ordered to clean up the front of his home.

But Ken Mould, 50, has so far failed to act at his cul-de-sac in Rugeley, Staffs.

Last week he was fined £1,000 by magistrates for ignoring council orders to tidy the property. Although the first-floor windows are entirely hidden by a thick layer of foliage, dad-of-one Ken still lives there with wife Diane, 50.

A neighbour said: “It’s crazy how they could let their property get into such a mess.”
