    Oh that’s codswollop. I’m not a lawyer but I’m pretty sure they don’t have a leg to stand on. 

    For a start I’m pretty sure they can’t take legal action against something that might happen in the future (ie the plants getting too big or causing damage). 
    And while laurel can get wide, it won’t if it’s regularly trimmed. 

    What I would suggest is that the hedge plants should be positioned so that there’s room for someone to trim both sides regularly without stepping on the neighbours’ land ... looks as if they’d not appreciate that. 🙄 

    Id let them consult their lawyer and try taking legal action ... on what you’ve told us they don’t have a case and it will just be costing  them money. 🙄
