Ralph Harvey, 63, and his neighbours have been suffering from yob attacks for some time so Ralph decided to take action to protect his home. He put up a 12-volt electric fence to prevent people climbing into his garden.
The police, who ignore his 999 calls however, have warned him that if a yob is injured by the low voltage fence, they could sue him. Mr Harvey took action to protect his home after a siege of bricks, paving slabs, and even acid in his street.
Neighbours are also under siege, one claiming to have had a skip worth of bricks thrown into their garden. Another neighbour is afraid to use her patio as she fears she could be killed by flying masonry. Police have stepped up patrols.
