"I had my porch window smashed, had my car covered in yellow paint and stones thrown at my house - it was non-stop."

Things seemed to calm down for a time, until last week.

Ms Myhill said: "It was late last Monday, around 11.40pm and I was fast asleep.

"I woke up to a constant thudding sound and the dog started barking.

The successive attacks at Ms Myhill's property has caused her children four-year-old Harriett, seven-year-old Amelia and 11-year-old Samuel, to constantly be on edge.

She added: "My kids are going crazy about this now - they're in such a state.

"I've got three young children and Harriett won't go to bed on her own anymore, she needs constant attention.

"Samuel is just so unsettled - he's just waiting for something else to happen now.

"It's been a nightmare for all of us. Whoever is doing this doesn't understand the consequences of their actions.

"My whole house is completely ruined now. You can see all these stains from what's been smashed against it.

"I really don't feel safe or comfortable here now. This random act of violence is criminal damage and I want something done."
