THE daughter of an ex-Spurs manager has won a retrial after being branded a “berserk neighbour from hell” for hurling bricks over a fence.
Sandra Durdin and Trevor Dempsey were locked in an 18-month battle with Joanne Shreeves, 51, following a row over a concrete post in their driveway.

It culminated in Shreeves – daughter of ex-Spurs manager Peter – hurling bricks and part of a kitchen cabinet over a fence dividing their properties in Chingford, Essex.
She was previously convicted of assault, criminal damage and two counts of threatening behaviour with intent after causing £5,000 worth of damage.
But the offences were set aside after Shreeves failed to attend her trial claiming she was too ill.
A judge has now agreed to fix a retrial for November 30 at Stratford Magistrates’ Court after she previously applied to reopen the case, Mail Online reports.
Shocking CCTV showed Shreeves almost hitting Sandra as she lobbed a shovel full of cement over the fence topped with barbed wire.
Stratford Magistrates’ Court also heard how she told her neighbours “you’re dead” and called one “you dirty f****** c***”.
She was described like a “woman possessed” after “going berserk” during the horror.
Sandra told the court: “She went to her garage, took out her shovel and shovelled out what we put in and threw it over the top of the fence and actually hit me.
“You could see her throwing boulders over the fence throwing stuff at the house and windows.
“She was out of control. There were boulders and bricks coming over your fence. If that had have hit us it would have killed us.”
The court was told the neighbours had been friends for over 20 years but the relationship soured when Trevor knocked over a concrete post in their driveway and replaced it without agreement.
Sandra previously revealed how the couple were forced to leave their home and move to Ramsgate, Kent, following the drama.
