An architect who helped friends landscape their garden free of charge is being sued for £265,000 after the project went wrong.

Basia Lejonvarn, 52, insisted it was not 'fair, just or reasonable' to expect her to compensate Peter and Lynn Burgess over her work, which was unpaid.

A court ruling leaves Mrs Lejonvarn facing huge legal costs and also opens the way for the Burgesses to sue her for £265,000 damages.

Lord Justice Hamblen said the relationship between them was not just 'informal or social' and 'the context was a professional one'.

The row between the former friends broke out when the Burgesses decided they wanted to iron out the steep slopes in their garden in 2013.
