Harassment is defined as a course of action (more than once) which is intended to harass, does harass, is reckless as to whether it harasses, or if the average bystander would look at the conduct and think that it was indeed harassment.
Harassment is both a civil matter and a criminal matter.
If you are being harassed. Go to the police and ask them to warn the ex-under the Protection from Harassment Act. Some police forces take that very seriously and others not so and therefore, you may need to speak to a senior officer or put a complaint in writing to the Chief Constable.
You need to keep a diary of dates, incidents et cetera.
If she is continually making noise, you can make a complaint to the Environmental Health Department at the local authority and they can actually issue a noise abatement notice.
