Hi everyone, I have had asthma since I was four years old way back in 1955... I'm 65 in December.
My wife and I bought a nice new flat in 2010 so that we can retire.
Sad to say we have the neighbour from hell move in on the ground floor... we are on the second floor.
The neighbour must smoke about 40 a day a he has a terrible cough accompanied by retching, harking and coughing up phlegm many times a day.
He stands on a very small balcony outside his rented/benefits apartment and the smoking comes into our well insulated apartment my eyes are often red and stinging + the usual sensitivity problems with my lungs. I feel short of breath more often these days. What can I do?? Is this legal? I have been in touch with the Plymouth City Council anti social behaviour department who can't help me. I have now gone to public protection with PCC who I did receive an "odour diary" from PCC sent it back = no reply :/
OK those are my complaints the man also has a wife and baby... Their apartment must be damaging the babies lungs ... mustn't it? I did peep in the window when they were out and there was an overflowing ashtray in the living room so the baby must be inhaling smoke??
To cap all this the female is three months+ pregnant and the smoke will most certainly affect the unborn baby
I'm at my wits end here....
Any suggestions or advice?
