It is not the first time there as been trouble at the Thames Valley Housing Association apartment, where there are seven flats, four with children living in the building.

According to residents and neighbours living nearby, for the past two years they have seen trouble and the constant comings and goings of different people to the flat, where, they say, hard drugs are being taken.

A mum who has lived at the premises for about a year with her son, told the News & Mail: “This is the last straw.  We were just coming in on Friday morning when this bloke was coming out, and my three-year-old-boy saw blood gushing out of his stomach.

“He shouldn’t have to see something like that, especially where he lives and in broad daylight!

“About half a dozen police cars, ambulances and forensics turned up.   We all had to be evacuated for a couple of hours while they were going in and out of the flat.

“These are really decent apartments but these people shouldn’t be allowed to live here.  No one should be subject to this sort of behaviour in their everyday lives.  It’s not safe.

“I’m too scared to leave my window open and I’ve had to cut the wires to my door buzzer to stop the junkies trying to get in.  I’m too frightened to go anywhere when it’s dark and my little boy is too scared to sleep on his own.

“I am not the only resident to have complained to Thames Valley on numerous occasions but it just falls on deaf ears and nothing’s been done about it.”
