A MOTHER has claimed that a “petty” feud with her neighbour has gotten out of hand after he keeps parking his car perilously close to hers.
Tracey Featherstone, a support worker from Hull, has become increasingly frustrated by her neighbour’s alleged actions which have left her unable to make journeys from home.
According to Hull Live, the woman claims that the neighbour is parking his car too close as pictures show only an inch gap between the two vehicles.
Tracey said the man next door comes home every night at 6pm and parks his car as close as possible to hers, despite there being plenty of room on the street.
She said: “I park my car at the back off my house in a car park.
“I parked my car up at 6pm in a good space, but then he comes home and puts his work van right at the side of mine with me unable to drive it out.”
Tracey also claims that she has had to plan her journeys around when the neighbour’s car has been moved, which has made her feel trapped inside her home.
But, despite the ongoing “petty feud” between the pair, Tracey says they have barely had a conversation in the past.
And after speaking with other neighbours, it appears that only she has had such problems with the man in question.
“He had no motivations at all and we don’t really talk as I don’t know him, she said.
“He seems to target my car only.”
Tracey has also reported scratches on the side of her vehicle and yesterday said she discovered an unusual substance that had appeared on her car.
“I have a scratch along the side too. I am very angry,” she added.
In recent years Police have had to attend to several parking feuds, that in some cases have turned nasty.
