Residents living on the street of Tom Crawford's former house say they feel like aliens in their own street due to the amount of security and security dogs surrounding the area.

They are arguing that the new circumstances are causing distress and upset, and there hasn't been any respect for how it's affecting the other residents on the street.

Residents recently wrote a letter to the Nottingham Post outlining their annoyance. They are emphasising that they "special needs children who are finding it difficult" and that they "have concerns about where the CCTV cameras are pointing".

Bradford and Bingley has followed proper legal procedures and the property has been repossessed under an enforceable possession order.

"It is regrettable if this is impacting upon law abiding local residents.

"However, in light of the actions undertaken by some of Mr Crawford's supporters and, on advice from the police, Bradford and Bingley has been left with no option and has placed security at the site."
