Our nasty neighbour is trying to bully me and my elderly mother out of our home | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: A NASTY neighbour is trying to bully me and my elderly mother out of our home.

He’s put dog poo through our letterbox, threatened to torch the flat and sent anonymous hate mail.

My mum is 87 and now virtually a prisoner in her own home. She’s too scared to go out in case this man shouts at or hurts her.

I’m 55 and don’t like leaving her alone to go to work, or even to go shopping.

It all started when this neighbour, who lives above us, kept playing his music so loudly we couldn’t hear the TV.

I asked him nicely to stop. He swore at me and told me to mind my own business.

Then he started his campaign of harassment.

He’ll hang around outside to intimidate us, and has even tried to prevent other people from shopping for us when we were isolating during lockdown.

I’ve asked the council to move us, but they say there’s nothing they can do.

They’ve sent him letters telling him to stop, but he just rips them up and posts them back through our door.

We’re both really frightened.
