DOGGERS in Polmont have been foiled after a 10ft-tall hedge that hid their antics was lopped.

Falkirk Council cut the hedge in a car park on the A801 back after complaints from locals. The hedge is now ankle-height.

A council spokesperson said that the hedge had been cut back to "avoid further incidents".

Scottish Natural Heritage said that it hoped appropriate surveys had been done to ensure there was no threat to wildlife.
