AN EPILEPTIC woman and her disabled father have reached breaking point in their long-running battle with stone-throwing yobs.

Julie Horton and her father John Goodyear say they are prisoners in their own home because of the stone throwing.

Recently one stone smashed into the front bay window close to where Mrs Horton’s ten-year-old daughter Michelle was sitting.

Michelle regularly has nightmares and has moved from the front bedroom to the back because she is afraid of stones smashing through the window.

“It’s unbelievable what we have had to put up with in the last two years,” said Mr Goodyear.

“It really is terrible — we are prisoners in our own home.

“Recently we were upstairs sleeping when a stone was thrown. My daughter went into an epileptic seizure and my ten-year-old granddaughter rang 999 and put Julie in the recovery position.”

The latest incident has left a large hole in the bay window of the family home in Champion Way, Church Crookham.

“I don’t know how long it will be before the window is repaired,” said Mr Goodyear.

“The front door was smashed last April and it took the housing association until December to get it sorted.”
