A FAMILY claim their end of Nantwich Road in Crewe is being ignored in calls for action against drunken yobs.
Clive and Hilary Washington say homes in the railway station area of the road are constantly under attack from vandals.
Residents living further along the road have led a high-profile campaign calling for an increased police presence.
They demanded action after a series of vandalism incidents in the alleys at the back of their houses.
Next month they will meet with Cheshire Chief Con-stable Peter Fahy to discuss their problems.
Mrs Washington believes he should hear from all Nantwich Road residents, especially those living near its many pubs and takeaways.
She said: 'Things have got so much worse since 24-hour drinking was introduced. Hardly a weekend goes by without some damage to our house or car.
'We've had smashed windows, graffiti on our walls and in the latest attack, our drain pipe torn off.
'One night we saw a gang, one of them with a brick in hand, which was smashed through our neighbour's car window.
'Police were called but they scarpered. They were found but it couldn't be proved they were responsible because they weren't caught in the act.
'There are fewer residents in this area of Nantwich Road but the ones who are here really suffer by being in the thick of things.
'It doesn't bother the shopkeepers because they aren't here at night but it does the many families living in side streets like Ernest Street near us.'
She added: 'What were are asking for is an increased police presence between 11pm and 3am when trouble kicks off at weekends.'
A spokeswoman for Mr Fahy said he was waiting to confirm a date which would be convenient for residents. Pencilled are September 4, 5 or 8 when he will come to Crewe to meet with residents at a venue to be decided.
