I have the neighbours from hell, and I don't know what to do. Life before them was peaceful and pleasant.

They are an Aboriginal family, a mum, a dad and a little toddler, but they always have a lot of people at their house. They are forever out in the street yelling profanities, smashing bottles, staggering drunk up and down the street yelling abuse at people. Screaming at each other, and fighting. They scare me sometimes. This carry on goes until all hours of the night and early hours of the morning, 2 - 3 days a week.

I've call the Police when it gets really bad, but most of the time the Police don't even turn up. They've come twice. They've even told me on the phone there's not much they can do. I don't think the Police want anything to do with it. I can't blame them, but it still leaves me and my family with the dilemma of aggressive and abusive neighbours that we are constantly in fear of.

We own our home and have been here for 20 years, we really don't want to have to sell and move just because of these people.

Any ideas ?
