A NEIGHBOURS dispute that broke out over the death of a cat ended with two people being bound over to keep the peace this week.
The cat had died while the Morgan family were looking after it when the Sherlock family were away on holiday.

On July 18 last year, the two families who live in Pond Close, Wimblington, exchanged words.
