Although the site is administered from the United States, all UK lawyers are based in the UK. I am in north-west England.
Section 1 (2) a of the Act applies in my opinion, he has no excuse (you told him you would not allow this) but he went ahead anyway so he intended to do it at the worst or at best, ***** ***** reckless.
You can report this to the police but don’t be at all surprised if they are not interested in prosecuting the neighbour and they simply just say that it is a civil matter. It is a civil matter but it’s also a criminal matter.
If you make the complaint, they should follow it up even if they don’t go all the way to court with it. If they refuse to do anything, then make a formal complaint in writing to the chief constable.
Further, the screws holding the camera are trespass although that isn’t a criminal matter, that a civil matter.
To answer your specific questions:
1 section 2 of the Fraud Act 2006 https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2006/35/section/1
2 I have covered this in my earlier lengthy response
3 if you feared immediate physical harm, then it’s assault. There doesn’t have to be contact for their to be an assault. Otherwise it would be the Public Order Act 1986 using threatening abusive or insulting words or behaviour causing failure of or provoking violence, or harassment alarm or distress, sections 4 and 4 a and 5
4 you can apply to court for an injunction to make him remove the offending items and reinstate the wall as it was. You can also ask the court to award costs against him.
The public order offence is also a police matter.
. Can I clarify anything else for you?
