Someone trespassing on your land isn't actually a crime but you can prosecute them which isn't ideal seeing as they are your neighbour. The socket is attached to their property so it may be worthwhile asking Citizens Advice.
 
I don’t think that’s going to last very long charging a car.

1. It’s going to get very warm
2. It’s going to take forever to charge anything bigger than a golf buggy.

So do they park in front? On the left of picture? Why couldn’t they have put the socket there?

Dont know, the girls dad did it, thats what Im worried about, my van is there.
Yes they said it would cost so much more putting it at the front! so the cable goes over the pavement to the car,

Are you sure the property line is right up to the wall? Looks like a fairly new house, so developments normally give 1m around the house to property line for maintenance.
