Alloa, Clackmannanshire: Margaret Penman

An ASBO (anti-social behaviour order) has been given to the whole of Margaret Penman’s neighbouring village of Sauchie. She says it is like living in the middle of gang warfare.
Margaret, 32, of Alloa, Clackmannanshire, explains: ‘It’s like a mini-Beirut. Day after day police cars, riot vans, ambulances and fire engines roar past my flat. Junkies live here and threaten my family.
‘The alleyway leading to my son’s school is used every night for fights between the gangs. I have seen kids of eight looking for trouble with bricks, pickaxes, iron bars and baseball bats with six-inch nails sticking out.
‘People are getting seriously hurt. The police and the council promise to make changes but nothing is done. I desperately hope that Mums’ Army can help change things.’
