A MAP has revealed the areas where you're most likely to have troublesome neighbours.

New statistics revealed by The Sun have broken down the number of Community Protection Notices (CPNs) issued by police forces across England.



The notices are designed to stop an adult, business or organisation from committing antisocial behaviour which spoils the community's quality of life.

CPNs – which can also be issued by councils – are often handed to Brits who terrorise their neighbours.

Dorset Police – who look after a population of 426,516 – had the highest number of CPNs issued per 100,000 people, the data found.

City of London Police – who look after the capital's historic financial district – came in second, while Essex Police were third.

Some forces were unable to reply as they did not store the necessary data.

One of those forces was West Mercia Police – which covers areas including Worcester.

It was there that Thomas Meenaghan, 36, was slapped with a community protection notice after unleashing X-rated tirades from his bedroom.

He was accused of swearing at neighbours in Worcester, blaring loud music and letting his dogs bark outside.

And Worcester was where Frances Payne, 56, was slapped with community protection notices after stringing barbed wire across her path.

She falsely claimed walkers were straying into her land so blocked off the route with razor wire, chains and "keep out" notices.

Frances even hurled a branch at two women who tried to get through the gate.

She was slapped with community protection notices ordering her not to block off the footpath before she was later charged with a string of offences.
