Police have been called almost daily to the home of Kirsty Bloomfield, in Maidenburgh Street, since late last year, to reports of screaming, shouting and a friend of the 18-year-old urinating on a neighbour’s doorstep.She forced one neighbour out of her own home:
Siobhan Duke, 36, decided to move elsewhere in Colchester last month after living next to Miss Bloomfield became too much to bear.Unfortunately, Ms Duke, they will. Because these problems never get resolved, they simply get moved on.
Speaking of her nine-month hell, she said: “I lived there about three years and never had a problem.
“She moved in in October and I just thought she was a struggling young mum with two kids.
“I have a five-year-old autistic son and two teenage daughters. We could hear her having sex every night.
“They would see us in the kitchen and shout abuse at us, which would really upset my daughters. It was bothering my son at school, too.
“It has been a nightmare – I wouldn’t want anyone else to go through this.”
See what I mean?
The residents spoke out after District Judge Simon Mitchell agreed to grant a seven-day possession order on the terraced house in the town’s Dutch Quarter.As a mother (even if in name only) of young children, she’ll have to be housed somewhere.
After seven days, bailiffs will be called and Miss Bloomfield looks set to be evicted from the Colchester Council-owned property.
And at taxpayer expense, even if those taxpayers are saving on one part of the budget, at least.
Miss Bloomfield also owes more than £1,000 in rent after she stopped paying it in April when her benefit stopped, the court heard.Anyone think the taxpayer will ever see that money?
She did not attend the hearing and was not represented in court. She was also unavailable to speak to the Gazette.
As well as paying back the rent, she has been ordered to pay £300 costs.
Nope, me neither…
