A 'TERRIFIED' disabled man says he was driven to the brink of suicide after his home was targeted by 'vile' anti-social neighbours whom he claims left human excrement on his doorstep.

Stuart Cameron, 66, says he went to The Esplanade in Greenock planning to 'end it all' following what he describes as a 'year of pure and utter hell'.

Mr Cameron — who has numerous serious medical ailments — says some of his neighbours at the Westburn Buildings turned against him after he told one not to lend £10 to a drug addict.

He told the Telegraph that he has since had his front door and windows pelted with eggs as well as having curry sauce smeared on the outside of his home of 12 years.

Mr Cameron said: "I've had the glass pane on my front door panned in, my doormat was covered in human dirt.

"I've had curry sauce, I've had Branston sauce, curried rice and eggs chucked at my door and windows.

"You can still see the marks.

"I'm absolutely terrified."

Diabetic Mr Cameron — who has two walking sticks — has heart disease, high blood pressure and cholesterol as well as COPD.

He recently had to undergo emergency surgery after his gall bladder burst.

Mr Cameron says the harassment he has suffered at home has also spilled over into other areas.

He said: "All this vile anti-social behaviour came about because I said to a neighbour not to lend a tenner to someone because he's a drug addict.

"Someone tried to trip me up in Iceland and also push me down the stairs outside of here.

"It all started about a year ago and I'm just at my wits' end with it all now.

"Folk have called me names and said things like how do I not just 'hurry up and die'."

Mr Cameron added: "The police got me down at The Esplanade a few weeks ago.

"I was actually in the water and the police pulled me out — a big red-haired officer.

"That's four times I've been on the brink of ending it all.

"They put me in the Larkfield Unit because I was suicidal.

"I've been here for 12 years but other people have moved in here in the last year or so and just brought the place down.

"My CPN [community psychiatric nurse] is trying to get me into sheltered housing and I've been on the phone to River Clyde Homes as well.

"I just want away from this place and to live without being frightened all the time.

"I don't know how much more I can take."

The Telegraph approached both Greenock police and River Clyde Homes about Mr Cameron's situation.

Elaine Cannon, service improvement manager for RCH, said: “Staff have received reports of anti-social behaviour from Mr Cameron and these have been investigated in accordance with our anti-social behaviour policy.

"Police Scotland are involved but we cannot comment further at this stage.

"Mr Cameron does have a current housing application and our staff have been in discussions with him regarding expanding his housing options to help secure new accommodation."

Local Area Commander Chief Inspector Paul Cameron said: "We are aware of the concerns raised and we continue to work with our partners in an effort to resolve this situation.

"We have investigated several incidents, including an assault, where a 54-year-old man was arrested and charged and we are investigating acts of vandalism with enquiries ongoing.

"I would appeal to anyone who has any information regarding these acts of vandalism to contact us.

"Additional patrols are being carried out in the area to provide reassurance and Mr Cameron has been assigned a local community police officer to raise any ongoing concerns he may have."
