Southall, Greater London: Sharon Bartlett
She called the police and when nothing happened, she contacted Mums' Army.
Sharon, 51, of Southall, Greater London, said: 'We know who's responsible but the police won't do anything. My neighbour was put in hospital by a gang of yobs, and even then officers took three weeks to show up.
'Kids hang around outside our house dealing drugs and there's no one there to stop them. I saw patrol officers on our street once. They cautioned my neighbour's little girl, who has learning difficulties, for chalking on the pavement.
'We get no support from the authorities and it's time for things to start changing around here.
'I don't want my 12-year-old son growing up to be a yob. I'm joining Mums' Army because I believe that if we stand together, we can do something about it.'
