Northampton Woman Became "Suicidal" Because Of Anti-Social Neighbours

A woman from Northampton says that she lived with the frightening behaviour of several neighbours, for more than a year.

She asked time and again to get moved, but it wasn't until her doctor warned she was suicidal that Northampton Borough Council moved her out of the block in Spring Boroughs and into a different home elsewhere in the town.

She spoke anonymously to BBC Radio Northampton reporter Tom Percival.

Stuart talks to Chief Inspector Faye Tennant from the Northampton Antisocial Behaviour Unit, and to Councillor Mary Markham who is responsible for housing on Northampton Borough Council.
