A Sheffield couple say they are 'living in fear' because of the damage and noise caused by visitors to their block of flats.
Peter Simpson and wife Mary Hayball have recorded more than 20 separate incidents of antisocial behaviour near their council flat in Mather Walk, Darnall, in the last six months.
They say they have to put up with people shouting and swearing at night, and throwing things from windows.
The couple have repeatedly urged the council to sort out the problems, but say nothing has been done.
The latest act of vandalism left the secure front door to their complex hanging off its hinges.
"We've had people coming into the building, smashing the door and smashing the windows and waking people up in the early hours of the morning," said Mr Simpson, 74.
"Everyone in this block has complained."
The council asked Mr Simpson to fill in report sheets and document each incident. But with the list growing longer by the week, he wants action now.
"People are living in fear," he said. "People have children coming to stay and they are absolutely petrified.
"I'm not going to put up with that. That's the last straw."
Mr Simpson said he called the police whenever trouble started, and had no complaints with their response, but wanted to see more action from the council.
"When the door was kicked in the police did their best," he said.
"When police have caught them in the building they have moved them on."
The council said the door was repaired temporarily in December, and a permanent fix with new Georgian glass was due to be made yesterday.
A spokesman said: “We take anti-social behaviour very seriously and sympathise with anyone experiencing it.
“We are aware of the complaints from Mr Simpson. We have taken appropriate action and are monitoring the situation.
“We urge anyone experiencing anti-social behaviour to contact us on 273 4567.”
