A SINGLE mum and her baby son have been forced to flee their home following a two-year campaign of terror.
Victoria Bailey, 22, has suffered yobs throwing bricks through her windows, urinating through her letterbox and pushing burning paper under the door.
And she's had addicts injecting drugs right outside the front-door of her flat in Warkworth Court, Stanney.
Ms Bailey believes the stress of living with this aggravation caused her to have a premature birth.
Now, two years on, the problems have escalated to such an extent that she never wants to return to the property.
The 'final straw' for her came last week, when she returned from holiday to find her flat had been ransacked.
Burglars had daubed paint and lipstick on all the walls, torched her bed, destroyed pictures of her son, and emptied bags of rubbish in every room.
Ms Bailey and her son have now moved in with her mother Suzanne Sharples.
To safeguard the family, the Pioneer is not revealing their address.
Mrs Sharples said: 'It's terrible what Victoria has gone through. I've been very frightened for her.
'She first moved into the flat while pregnant and, in a couple of days, the wallpaper was falling off with damp.
'While she's been there she's had people putting lighted bits of paper through her door, rubbish dumped in the communal hallway, windows smashed with house bricks.
'She was so stressed at the beginning that she had the baby early, and he nearly died.'
Luckily Ms Bailey's son, Ellis, survived and, although he suffers from asthma, is now a happy 16-month-old.
But during the intervening years, the vandalism problems have grown stead-ily worse.
Mrs Sharples said: 'She's now living with me and won't go back there again.'
Ms Bailey and her mum have reported the burglary to the borough council's housing unit.
A council spokeswoman said: 'We are in the process of assessing the damage and have met with Ms Bailey and her mother.'
