You could prune both of them down as low as about a foot high, but don't expect any lilac flowers for a couple of years.

I USE THE MET OFFICE WEBSITE WHICH, PRESUMABLY THE BBC DOES ALSO. I DON'T KNOW HOW THEY CAN GET IT SO WRONG.

 You've hit the nail on the head. Where's the middle of England? Some folks think it's Meriden, others claim it's Bakewell. Very different weather on many days of the year.

Planting hedge next to 3ft brick wall

One of the most frequent nuisances with hedges that people plant them too close to the property boundary and then the hedges grow out across pavements and footpaths. Have a walk round your area with a tape measure in your pocket and take some realistic measurements of the thicknesses of hedges that you want yours to be like. Then you can see where yours should be planted so that it's not a pain to the public.
