Thanks for that, I've removed it from his land, for a change something invasive that you don't have to dig six foot down to get the root!
Unfortunately next door seems to have a load of it as well, (not as large doesn't seem to like shade???) But it seems regular strimming will keep it at bay.
God dammit, there isn't a smilie for crossed fingers.
