A 'neighbour from hell' has made a mum so ill she is desperate to move.
Emma Ward, is appealing for help after an ongoing dispute with a neighbour, who allegedly 'smeared food' on her car and poured syrup on her son's trampoline.
On top of dumping her pet in the wheelie bin, the 27-year-old claims her neighbour has also been behind parcels and bins going missing and bogus letters being delivered from social services.
Even containers of urine have been post through Emma's letterbox and left at her front door, she told StokeonTrentLive.
Emma from Loggerheads, Staffordshire, said: "It’s been months of absolute hell and my emotions are all over the place because I am getting told I will be moved so I get my hopes up when I hear a property has become available and then I get back down again because they have given it to somebody else."
She is now considering moving out of the area she has lived in her whole life, she says, having asked Aspire Housing for help with the issue.
Aspire Housing has said it is looking to move one of the parties after mediation failed to solve the problem.
Emma who lives with her partner and two sons aged one and five, continued: "I have lost so much weight due to this – I’m less than eight stone now.
"I’ve been to the doctors as well. I am always on edge and the police have come out to me.

“I speak to Aspire regularly, about three or four times a week. They are continually telling me that they are trying to help me and trying to move me but I don't believe anything they say anymore.
"They have had four properties come available which they could have moved me to but chose not to because they said I wasn't a priority.
"I might have to go private because I don’t think they are going to move me.

"It’s been months of absolute hell and my emotions are all over the place because I am getting told I will be moved so I get my hopes up when I hear a property has become available and then I get back down again because they have given it to somebody else.
"I am more than happy to just get away from the situation.
"I have lived here my entire life and my parents have lived here. They went to the same school my son goes to so I am very much a local. I don't really want to move out of the area and have to change my son's school. I’d like us to stay where we are.”
Aspire Housing says it is working to resolve the 'ongoing neighbour dispute'.
Director of communities Alun Bragg said: “We have been working closely with customers in Loggerheads to try to resolve an ongoing neighbour dispute. Following collaboration with both parties to engage in mediation, and the involvement of external partner organisations, it has become clear that the best course of action is relocation.
“We are aware of the concerns of these customers, and we are currently working with one of the parties to explore rehousing options.
“Aspire Housing takes reports of anti-social behaviour very seriously. We’d like to encourage customers to get in touch if they ever feel unsafe in their home. We will always work to support our customers to achieve an amicable resolution wherever possible.”
