Neighbour cutting their hedge overhanging our garden

Really perplexed on this. Un-neighbourly neighbour has started to severely cut back their beech hedge which we share as a boundary. In doing so they reached through into our garden to remove all the beech hedge which was leaning over into our garden. No consultation, just did it. The beech hedge is well or was well established, we had no problem having the hedge in our garden. Indeed we encouraged the growth, enjoying the foliage & wildlife. So, as it stands or not for long, there is going to be no hedge, no screening, no privacy! Strange action? Would like some guidance on this. Just the principle of it - doing what the hell they like with out consultation. Would appreciate, direction as to where we stand & they do - before I confront culprits & spoil a Sunday morning & declare war.
Cheers

Exactly whose hedge is it ?

Exactly what has the neighbour cut?

How high is it ?

If your neidisturbed nesring birds that is totally out of order

If he has leant over and cut your side its out of order

if its your own hedge and he has reduced the height he is out of order

The details must be correct to give you advice

Were the roots and main stems of this hedge on the neighbours side with branches overhanging onto yours?

If the hedge belongs to your neighbour as you say then they have every right to cut it back. If you want privacy then you could plant a hedge on your property or erect a fence. I would be annoyed too, but if it's their hedge then there's nothing you can do.
Keep calm and carry on.
