Good neighbour Patricia Cook was only too happy to look after her friend’s house and garden while she was away on holiday.
The 67-year-old and her daughter Louise dutifully visited to water the plants and pick up windfall apples.
Suddenly they were confronted by police wielding powerful Tasers after they scaled a 7ft fence to challenge her.
The drama happened after another neighbour rang 999, fearing that burglars had broken in.
