A LEAFY lane near the heart of Constable country provides the unlikely backdrop to such acrimonious revelations as those in John Troupe's case.

The quiet cul-de-sac of Notcutts in East Bergholt is mainly inhabited by pensioners and retired couples enjoying their twilight years.

But it was here Troupe decided to carry out his revenge on the family of the wife who spurned him.

His retribution came in the most embarrassing and public manner.

Residents of the close today seemed shocked that an explicit hate campaign was carried out on the doorsteps of their homes.

Today they were more than surprised to discover police were visiting Westbourne High teacher, John Troupe, who displayed nude photographs of his ex-wife in the Close.

One man who has lived in the area for 60 years said he was surprised to hear what had happened.

The Evening Star approached Troupe, he did not wish to comment.
