Alex Watts : Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Alex Watts : Have you reported this to the police or council?
Alex Watts : Also is it the same family doing it?
I have not reported it to the Police or Council.
I forgot to mention that the father is running on and off our property to retrieve the football
There is also another family who live next door to the above father.
We thought we were neighbours but there is no respect when this football is being kicked.
Our property has an accessway. We are at the start from the public highway.
We own all of the land to the front of our property including the accessway area.
Alex Watts : Ok, let me give this some thought and come back to you
Alex Watts : You should repor this to the council. The council have a duty to investigate this if it is causing harm to your Health under the environmental protection act.
Alex Watts : if there is enough evidence then they can prosecure and stop this.
Alex Watts : you can also seek a civil remedy for an injunction to prevent the nuisance and trespass onto your land
Alex Watts : you would need to complete forms N1
Alex Watts : http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf
Alex Watts : And N16a

Alex Watts : the court would list the matter for hearing and see whether it is contested.
Alex Watts : if so the judge would set it down for a final hearing and give directions. He would then decide whether to make an interim order.
Alex Watts : If the judge makes an injunction and it is breached this is contempt of court. They can be warned, fined or sent to prison.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
