Abusive next-door neighbour is threatening our kids and making our lives hell

DEAR DEIDRE: MY next-door neighbour is making my family’s life hell.

I am 34 and a single mum to three young children, aged seven, five and 15 months.

He used to bang on our front door day and night, so I reported him to the police. That only made things worse.

After that he started to shout and threaten me, so I stopped letting the older children play in the front garden.

Then he deliberately left some broken glass all over our front path.

This time the police arrested him.

When he was released he went quiet. I thought it was over.

But last week, I went to put the bins out and was met by a horrifying sight.

He had put three crosses in our front garden, including a tiny one for the baby, and poured red paint over the kids’ bikes, like blood.

I am absolutely terrified of what he will do next.

DEIDRE SAYS: This is appalling harassment. Please call the police again.

They can give him an Antisocial Behaviour Order.
