Pregnant Jehovah Witness in bikini protest against independent school

A pregnant Jehovah's Witness has launched a bikini-clad protest against an independent school after it cut down the hedge that separated their properties.

Naghme King, 39, staged the unusual demonstration after claiming that the head teacher had "stripped her of her assets".

Following a long-running boundary dispute, which has involved council officials and lawyers, she took to the streets of Milton Keynes, Bucks, this week carrying placards calling for the school principal Deborah Berkin to be "a bit more loving" and to realise that "God is love".

Mrs King, a mother-of-five who is six months pregnant, said there was nothing wrong with her bikini protest and she was merely spreading the gospel according to Jehovah.

Some neighbours in Redland Drive, Loughton, took a less charitable view, with one remarking that local children thought she was "mad".

A neighbour who asked not to be named, said: "It all started over a hedge but now it's gone crazy. The school has tried reasoning with her but she keeps launching these incredible protests. Yesterday she was pacing up and down outside wearing a witch's hat and carrying her placards with sayings from the bible on them. She times her protests for when parents are dropping off their children at school. On the last occasion she was very pregnant and a strange sight to see."
