Basildon, Essex: Marcelle Dormer
Marcelle, 36, a mum of seven, of Basildon, Essex, contacted Mums' Army and said: 'It started with kids kicking our puppy under the fence. When I blocked the gap so they couldn't do it any more, they destroyed the top of our wall and tormented him from there instead.
'Since then we've had our windows put through and our car wrecked. We installed CCTV cameras but one of them was stolen. Children ring our doorbell in the middle of the night and bash on our windows.'
She said: 'The police do all they can but we need the council to provide safe, supervised facilities where youngsters can do something positive instead of terrorising the neighbourhood.
'I'm supporting Mums' Army because it's no good running away from the problem. We need to stand firm and fight it.'
