CLAIMS that a housing association acted heartlessly in ordering a tenant to pay hundreds of pounds to cut down its own trees have been rejected.

The Lanark-based Clydesdale Housing Association came under attack from 40-year-old tenant and full-time mum Angela Rennie after it ordered her to pay £325 plus VAT to cut down trees in the garden of the home she rents from them.

The Association in no way questions her claim that the Leylandii trees were there long before she took up the tenancy of the house in Douglasdale Street, Rigside and that the property is theirs, not hers.
